Schnabel cars are designed to carry a transformer, generator, or other large oversized load that cannot fit on a flatcar and meet clearance profiles. The car breaks in the center and picks up the load with the load clearing the rails by a few inches. The load is carried by attaching to the girders at the bottom for tension. The top of the girders engage the load for compression which is standard structural girder design.

This kind of car makes for unique operation. Typically they are speed limited when loaded. Short trains of this car, a caboose, and maybe a flat of associated parts for the load are in order. Also, they can only engage wide radius curves. The real cars have mechanisms for shifting the load laterally to make that last turn into the siding where it will be unloaded.
