Norfolk Southern has a fleet of more than 14,500 coal cars, including manual hopper cars for bottom-drop customers, gondolas for rotary dump service, high-cubic-capacity coke hoppers, and air-operated quick-discharge hoppers.
Over the years, our equipment team has replaced steel manual hoppers with new aluminum air-operated quick-discharge hoppers. We have also added twin-tub coal gondolas constructed of carbon steel, stainless steel, and aluminum. These rugged, lightweight cars are compatible with all Norfolk Southern-served car dumpers and typical thaw shed operations performed by our customers.
Whatever your needs, our team is committed to providing safe and reliable equipment from our extensive fleet of coal hoppers and gondolas. Reach out to the correct marketing contact, found on our main Coal Shipping page, for more information about equipment for your business.
