PROTOTYPE AND BACKGROUND INFO:
Intermodal transportation requires specialized rail equipment which is, on occasion, too specialized. To allow more flexibility in loading containers and trailers at terminals all-purpose spine cars were developed. These cars can be configured to allow loading of trailers of varying lengths, from 28Ft pups to 53Ft high capacity units. With the trailer hitches collapsed containers can also be loaded. 40Ft, 45Ft 48Ft and 53Ft containers call all be accommodated on these cars as well as 20Ft models provided they are mounted to a chassis.

The prototype for our model is based on a Trinity-built car owned by the TTX Company. These 70-ton cars (TTX class RAF30A) numbered TTRX 360817-361116 first appeared on the rails in the late 1990s. The Athearn model is faithful to the prototype allowing modelers to load a variety of trailers and containers.
