This is from the CSX dictionary,

Capacity (Freight Car) The normal load in pounds, cubic feet, or gallons which the car is designed to carry. These figures are stenciled on the car and are identified as "CAPY". Capacity is not to be confused with load limit, which is the maximum weight that can be loaded on a given car.

Load Limit The maximum load in pounds which the car is designed to carry.
