The 1937 AAR Box Car is widely recognized as the first standard freight car design to be voluntarily adopted by the majority of 
railroads throughout the United States. Although previous USRA designs also achieved widespread distribution, their success was 
mostly due to government control rather than popular acceptance. The 1937 AAR Box Car also had many features that became 
standard on boxcars for years to come, including dreadnaught ends, straight panel roof and an inside length of 40' 6". They had an 
interior height of 10' with a 3700 cubic foot capacity. With only a few variations built, this design helped the industry realize the 
economic advantages of freight equipment standardization; a concept that continues into the modern era.
