Atlas Trainman®

 

 N Scale 

 

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' 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.

This model follows the open-deck flat design commonly seen in trash trains around the United States. It also follows the prototypes used in international container service.
