After World War II boxcars became more specialized. Customers demanded wider doors so that they could use fork lifts to load and unload all manner of products. Interchange list data to the CB&Q, in the 1965-1970 period, shows commodities in double door box cars to have included: Aluminum Ingots, Copper, Copper Bars, Ingots, Lumber, Plywood, Shakes, and Zinc (ingots).
