RUGGED RAILGON

The first of 4000 gondola cars composing Trailer Train's new Railgon fleet have been delivered. These rugged 100-ton high-side gondolas operate in a pool free of car service rules applying to cars owned by individual railroads. Extra strength was put in the car floor, sides, ends, corners and running gear. A special corner post arrangement involves pin connections between top chords at sides and ends to counter impact loads without bowing car ends.
