Description
 
An increased use of shipping containers during the 1970s led to new designs of railway cars for carrying them. The standard cars used at the time were full plate-deck 85' and 89' flat cars with 70-ton trucks. However, each 20-foot international shipping container of the era could gross some 25 tons, thus a flat car carrying four at maximum gross would be 100 tons. In an effort to address this weight issue, new flat cars with open decks and 100 ton trucks were placed in service and eventually used for a new railroad commodity: trash containers.
Features
Open deck design True scale dimensions with accurate details Weighted, detailed underframes 100-ton trucks equipped with free-rolling metal wheels Accurate painting and printing

Freight car review July 19, 2012
Reviewer: William Hall from Franklin, MA  
Nice car. Can run this with or without containers since the metal frame gives the car some substance. The containers can be somewhat finicky pressing them on to the car, but once there in place and with some weathering, this is a fine addition to anyone's modern freight mix.
