A multi-unit articulated car with deep wells between trucks has been introduced by Budd for handling trailers and containers through the most restricted of overhead clearances. The low profile car can consist of two to ten units and standard components are used for all parts that will require periodic servicing. To increase torsional rigidity, much use is made of tubular sections in the structures. Fuel economy is enhanced by the lightweight and the lower center of gravity.
