These cars were used to carry any type of freight, either in cartons or in bulk. Today, most box cars have been replaced by trailer containers on flat cars. #411 is an all steel type built for the Baltimore [&] Ohio Railroad in 1927. Purchased by the Arcade & Attica in 1967, it was used to transport products for the Bordens Co. of Arcade to many places around the U.S.
