The Freight Train[1] is a boxcar in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

The train car is inspired by North American 50-ft Single-door boxcars, namely the TTX and Railbox boxcars, although it unusually has a single door at one end and four square platforms on the roof. While not accessible, the train car has a fully-rendered interior, which is briefly seen at the end of the mission The Paleto Score.

The boxcar is only available in a weathered brown color (which is actually a texture applied over the whole body, as the files indicate it spawns in white), and it bears the Freight and Santos Spirit logos. Boxcars can spawn with wellcars on the same train set, but they never spawn with tankcars.


Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

Like the Freight Train, the train car cannot be destroyed. They will simply push or phase through any obstacle on the tracks, and will resist any explosions. The player can jump and stand on the train car while it is moving, which makes for a great way to lose a wanted level, as the player can usually lose the cops when the train enters a tunnel. Care should be taken when jumping towards the freight cars or the locomotive, as the character may fall off the train. Technically being a vehicle, it has its own handling line, which is derived from the Freight Train.

Static Variants

Static props of the boxcar can be seen in train yards and sidings around the state, which seem to assume a more realistic design (evident by the lack of the door at one end and the roof platforms). The first one has a yellow color (either clean or with graffiti), and only bears the Freight company logo and parking brake wheels mounted on the ends of the box, while the second one are wrecked variations with no markings and a lack of bogies and parking brake wheels. Unlike the functional version, these boxcars can be seen with open doors, and player can easily enter them.

The yellow boxcars are prominently featured in the mission Chop, where the player must open the door of several boxcars to find out where D is hiding.


  • The left door of the boxcar is slightly ahead of the inner wall and has a single inner texture stretched across it, while the right door has split textures (as if they were double doors) and is aligned with the inner wall.
