Specific Item Information: One of the newest designs of wellcars, the lattice sided FCA 'Dynastack'® a new entrant to intermodal work. Intended to be a very different design to its competitors, FCA's Dynastack is a welded/riveted car with a significant weight advantage to railroads. The first cars were experimental and run in a blue NOKL paint scheme as NOKL 219907. 50 5-car units were delivered to TTX in late 2014, and these distinctive cars are now running in TTX colors across the USA. The cars are in the AAR class S162 and TTX have placed them in their JWG52 class.

Road Name History:
TTX Company (formerly Trailer Train) is a leading provider of railcars and related freight car management services to the North American rail industry. TTX's pool of railcars (over 220,000 cars and intermodal wells) is ideal for supporting shippers in the intermodal, automotive, paper & forest, metals, machinery, wind energy and other markets where flatcars, boxcars and gondolas are required.

Owned by North America's leading railroads, TTX's free-running pools provide fungible assets that minimize total empty miles, further lowering costs and minimizing risk for the industry, helping the railroads conserve their capital for other critical infrastructure needs. Customers easily recognize TTX's bright yellow cars as a consistent, high quality, well-maintained fleet that serves many transportation needs.

Brand/Importer Information:
