This summary of the design process for standardized container cars for UIC demonstrates the continuing work of ORE B112 Committee. Two types of cars meet the requirements of the Technical Unity of Railways (UT) of the International Union of Railways. They are suitable for running in SS service (120 kph) with a 20-ton axle-load. One car is a two-trucked unit 19,640 cm long over buffers; the other is a three-truck articulated design which is 27,100 cm long. The ORE Control Committee has approved both designs and it is anticipated there will be large orders for both types placed in coming years.
