The Cargill (CLSX) Salt Cars Page

Welcome to the Cargill (CLSX) Salt Cars Page.

Cargill operates a salt mine near Breaux Bridge, LA on a Louisiana & Delta (LDRR) branch line (ex SP/T&NO) so we tend to see a lot of these cars. The 301 series and the 1001 series tend to be the cars most commonly seen, but others have passed through as well. Many of these cars have colorful histories having been built for Seaboard Air Line, L&N or SOO line. The newest 5000 series cars were acquired new and feature alumium hopper bodies.
