The following new products are currently in research and development, and we now hope to have cars in production in 2018-9

Trinity Articulated 3-car unit
53' Double Stack wellcars

With the introduction of 53' containers, TTX ordered a number of 53' double stack articulated car sets. Combining the best of Thrall and Trinity designs, the RWG33A series cars were built between Sept 2003 and Jan 2005. The units comprised 3 cars [rather than the 5-car units of previous 40' to 48' car units] in order to ensure that the brake component requirements of the AAR were met. 889 units were produced, nearly all still running in 2019, as DTTX 729000-729888.

Modelers of intermodal trains have been asking for further 53' alternatives to the cars produced by manufacturers and by N Scale Kits.

The single car 53' stack car TTX's NWF13
is now also available here
and these articulated RWG33A double stack units will provide an interesting addition to consists.

Thrall Double Stack wellcars

The Thrall company produced a number of their distinctive wellcars. Originally designed in 1985 as the Lo-Pac 2000 cars, Thrall developed the cars in single car, drawbarred and articulated consists.

Some of these versions have appeared in N Scale, but the 40' and 45' cars have not been in production for some time. Some of the longer 48' cars have also been cut down to 40' cars. All of these differing cars have different ribbed sides.

N Scale Kits are looking to produce a number of these distinctive cars.

Modelers of intermodal trains are looking to have alternatives to the Gunderson cars produced by manufacturers and by N Scale Kits in cut down 40', 48' and 53' versions already produced by N Scale Kits.

Kasgro 450 ton 16 axle
Heavy Duty Depressed Center wellcars

Kasgro lease out these very heavy duty cars for transporting large transformers and boilers etc. around the USA on a 'per day' basis.The cars have been seen across the system often in very short consists, often just two locos and this HDDC car.

The model 16 axle car was available at the NSE Convention in Salt Lake City in June 2018 and a revised version is being produced.

57' Trinity All Purpose Spinecars

These longer spinecars were built to accomodate
the 53' trailers, as 2/28-1/57 cars.
Built in 1998/9 the cars are classed
RAF30a and run in the TTRX 36xxxx reporting
number series.

Modelers have long wanted versions of 57' spine cars, and these newly patterned cars will make a further contrast to the
48' and 53' TTX spinecar kits
already produced by N Scale Kits.

89' 4" BCOL Flatcars for ToFC use

These long flat cars will make another different addition to ToFC consists. The Marine Industries Ltd built cars have unusual wheel trays with
see thru grating and were an important element
of the BCR fleet from the '70's to the end of ToFC service in 2002.

The distinctive Can-car and flat deck trailers for these cars should also be available to run with these Canadian railroad intermodal cars.

These unusual ToFC cars will make an interesting contrast to the ToFC TTX, BNSF and UP flatcars
available at N Scale Kits.
