Between 1964 and 1975, Trailer Train (now known as TTX Co.) acquired a fleet of 5,000 modern 60' flat cars. Similar cars are rostered by most major U.S. railroads. Built by ACF, Thrall, and Pullman Standard, the TTX cars were assigned to various classes to handle loads as diverse as auto frames, logs, military vehicles, farm equipment, and construction equipment. Based on the TTX class F60GH cars built in the mid-1970s by Pullman Standard, this Premier model is built to full-scale 60' length and accurately replicates the prototype's wooden decking and four rows of tie-down tracks, two astride the center sill and one along each side.
In addition to the standard features below, the 60' flats also feature the following details:
Separate metal grab irons and stirrups
Full brake system with air pipes, levers, valve, cylinder, and air tank
Optional chains and load adjuster castings, which fit into the car's tie-down tracks, included for modelers wishing to add extra details. c 2008 Caterpillar CAT, CATERPILLAR, their respective logos, "Caterpillar Yellow" and the POWER EDGE trade dress, as well as corporate and product identity used herein, are trademarks of Caterpillar and may not be used without permission.
