SHAWMUT has built quite a few unusual freight cars and Maintenance of Way pieces. We have designed and built well over 100 pickle cars. Some of our cars are on display in pickle companies. Customers can opt for the  4 tub car and have the name of their choice, however we will not use prototype names that lack official permission from the company in writing. Most people name the cars after their model railroads or fantasy designs. The cars feature custom turned wooden tubs mounted within a plastic car. Pickle cars $150
