Insulation under floating building/in freezing weather


I am wanting to insulate under an old train car that is bounded by a wooden deck , lifiting it about 5 feet off the ground.
The bottom of the train car is composed of 4x6 wood beams. It is frozen and cold outside so i am curious what route would be cheapest/most efficient insulation on the bottom for the winter to keep the inside to hold extra heat, even if it is temporary. It is 26ft long x 8ft wide .
Thanks

Re: Insulation under floating building/in freezing weather


I would be skirting it similar to the way that mobile homes are skirted.

Using 2X 6, or 2X8 as the framework, with insulation between the studs, and sided with typical skirting material.

This seems to work well for those mobile homes.

Rigid foam panels glued/foamed to the bottom?
