The 85’ flatcar was introduced in the 1960’s to accommodate the latest 40’ trailers that were just being introduced on the nation’s highways. The 85’ all-purpose flatcar was capable of carrying highway trailers, intermodal containers, or a combination of the two. These versatile cars became the de facto standard for intermodal service during this era.
