History: The DODX Heavy-Duty flat cars are 68’ 150-ton flats, with two 3 axle "buckeye" trucks, built for the Department of Defense (DoD). These will hold two M1 Abrams or two M60.
There were four builders that produced this car:
- DODX 40000-40099 (FGE)
- DODX 40100-40299 (Thrall)
- DODX 40300-40549 (Ortner)
- DODX 40550-40599 (USRE)
Vehicles are secured to the flat with heavy duty tie-down chains.
Blocks of DODX cars usually move long distances mixed into regular manifest freight trains, however, unit trains of armor are not unusual. Armor is moved by rail between bases and practice ranges, or to ports of embarkation.
