ScaleTrains HO Scale: Rivet Counter - PS-Trinity Backpacker Well Cars - Trailer Train - 5 Car Set
Introduced in 1986 by longtime builder Pullman-Standard, the “Backpacker” well car is a 5-unit, articulated car featuring 40’ wells. All five wells can handle a 40’, 45’ or 48’ container loaded in the top position, with 53’ containers possible “staggered” in every other well in the top position.

The Backpacker is distinguished from other intermodal cars by its low-profile design. Many continue in service today.
