For general information; the 32oz Kraft Velveeta cheese comes in a handy stiff corrugated box 2½" x 2½" x 8" providing room for packing.

come on people..its not hard.
you can figure this out yourself in about 2 seconds.

www.google.com

"EMD F9 Length"

52 feet

52X12 = 624/87 = 7.17"


the boxes are 6 1/2" long and 1 1/2" wide and 2 1/2" high. I hpe thats helps everyone


7.17" is longer than 6.5", so the answer would be no.
