Trinity 53' Spine Car
Former BLMA Tooling!

 

- The Prototype
Spine cars are one of the most recognizable freight cars on the rails today.  Named after their simple, spine-like appearance, these versatile cars carry anything from highway trailers, to international, corrugated containers.  

  Built in late 1997 by Trinity Rail for TTX, these 5-Unit Spine Car's feature TTAX reporting marks.  While very similar to other 53' Trinity Spine Cars, the "RAF53C" class boasts nearly 250, 5-car sets on the TTX roster.
- The Models
Finally!  A ready-to-run spine car in N Scale!  Don't worry, we've done our homework!  As always, this project started with actual blueprints and measurements; the result is 100% authentic dimensions.  Furthermore, like the prototype, the N Scale models were designed for versatility.

  The models feature a die-cast metal frame and dozens of separately applied plastic and etched-metal components.  From there, each car is painted to exact TTX yellow and lettered as appropriate for the RAF53C fleet.

  These cars ride on our all-new 70-Ton ASF Ride Control truck with fine-scale metal wheels!  On top of that, the cars feature body mounted Micro-Trains couplers!  You can bet that empty or loaded, these cars will track, and look great as they glide down your rails.
