Atlas Master Class HO Scale: Thrall Triple 53' Articulated Well Car - Burlington Northern Santa Fe (SFLC)
When the domestic intermodal container market settled out in the late 90’s, the 53’ long container emerged the winner. Car builders responded with new wells of like size to accommodate the new standard. Introduced in series service in early 2000, Thrall’s triple 53’ articulated well car was certainly the best looking of the 53’ wells. Angular wheel cut-outs, three flared-bottom wide and eight narrow side posts give this intermodal age well car character.
Each car consists of three wells--A,B & C.
