  Boxcar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A boxcar (the American term; the British call this kind of car a "goods van") is a railroad car that is enclosed and generally used to carry general freight.
In both World Wars, French boxcars known as forty-and-eights were used as troop transports as well as for freight; in World War II by first the French, then the German occupiers, and finally the Allied liberators.
Hobos and migrant workers have often used boxcars in their journeys (see freighthopping), since they are enclosed and therefore they cannot be seen by railroad-employed security men ("Bulls") or police, as well as being to some degree insulated from cold weather.
