Notes: Built in the 1980's by ACF®, the Coalveyor Bathtub Gondola operated in unit train service to deliver coal to power plants. These cars were most often lettered for the utility companies that leased and purchased them. Many are still in service today.

By the year 2000, most Coalveyors had been in daily unit train service for nearly 20 years, and many continue on in this service today. However, several owners had begun selling off their fleets to smaller leasing companies and railroads. Some remained in unit coal train service, while others were placed in service hauling scrap material, construction debris, and other refuse. As a result of this, Coalveyors can now also be found in general freight service throughout the country. Our offering of AEX, DLWR and MRMX represents a few of the companies operating these "scrap service" cars today.
