With the popularity of the 45-ft trailer growing for over-the-road services, the author urges that railroads look to modifications in piggyback cars and equipment to assure long-term viability of TOFC service. While the standard piggyback car could be fitted with pedestals for handling two 45-ft trailers, none have been built this way and the question of safety will have to be examined. The traffic potential and productivity of the 45-ft trailer are explored.
