Equipment Information

CRIX 20519 is an insulated boxcar built for transporting temperature-sensitive food products. Unlike a refrigerated boxcar, it is not designed to cool its contents using ice or mechanical means. The lack of ice cooling is why the car is lettered with the “Dri-Protecto” advertising slogan. It was owned by the North American Car Company and modernized in 1960 before being leased to the Chicago Rock Island & Pacific Railroad under CRIX reporting marks.
