Equipment

BNSF strives to provide our customers with clean, well maintained equipment. We do this in cooperation with our customers who load and unload this equipment and whose products we transport.

BNSF and Association of American Railroads (AAR) rules stipulate that all product, dunnage or strapping material or anything not originally part of the railcar be removed upon release of the car after unloading. We ask that should any piece of equipment be inadequate or in need of repair, report this equipment to our car management personnel at 888-428-2673 opt.4, opt.4. Cars may be reported as clean and damage-free upon release with the use of Certified Clean section of the Switch and Release program on BNSF.

Through cooperation we will always have the best equipment available to our customers to load. If you have more questions about our equipment, see our frequently asked questions .
