TrainLife & ExactRail Partner on Exclusive Freight Car

A TrainLife.com Exclusive from

We are excited to announce that we have partnered with ExactRail to produce our first ever TrainLife Exclusive freight car! We are lucky to share an office (and even some employees) with the ExactRail team!

ExactRail's dedication to accuracy means that they don't very often use 'stand in' tooling for projects that are close to a certain freight car (some people call these 'foobies'). We know that there are many holes in the modeling world and many people that are happy to have a stand in model so long as it represents something close to the real thing...

With that in mind have worked closely with ExactRail to do just that! ExactRail has one product that could be considered a 'stand in model' as the design is a kind of combination of features of several freight cars. We're excited to share our first TrainLife.com Exclusive ExactRail release. The ExactRail HO Scale - Depressed Center Flat car!

Arriving this spring in 5 paint schemes and only available on TrainLife.com!

Road names being offered: UP • CR • TTX • NYC • PL&E

Being previewed this weekend at the ExactRail booth of the Railroad Hobby Show in West Springfield Massachusets, stop in at Booth 39 to check them out.

We hope to work with other manufacturers on additional TrainLife Exclusive products!

Where is the yellow TTX car. It doesn’t seem to be available. I’ve already put a deposit down on the Conrail, but couldn’t locate the TTX.???

The only other model of this car that I know of was an undecorated version by Eastern Car Works from many years. Perhaps you could find one at a a train show or swap meet.

I missed out on the first Exactrail model.
I would also like to see an undecorated model, with dimensional decals in white and black.
All piping and rods MUST BE steel or brass wire, though, NOT PLASTIC !
And how about working roller bearings?
Thanks folks!

Please specify what prototype on which it is based. Between my friends’ eras and mine, I need to know these things. The NYC model looks promising in my case. Thanks and I wish you very much luck with your approach to models unique to you.
