Background on TTX's TTLX Intermodal Cars

        The TTLX set of cars have been rebuilt from specific UTTX cars, while others have been assembled new. TTLX #60101-#60120 were originally UTTX #60101-#60120. TTLX #60121-#60167 were originally UTTX #60121-#60167, and TTLX #60168-#60195 were originally UTTX #60168-#60195. All of these cars were stretched so that they could accommodate a 48' trailer on each articulated unit. The TTLX cars also have had their truck-mounted brake systems converted to body-mounted systems. the TTLX series #60200-#60399, #60400-#60599, and prototype car #61003 were all built new.

        The AAR-code for these cars is Q156 - trailers only, five articulated platforms, and one 28' to 48' trailer per platform. All TTLX cars have 28' wheels in each truck. They also have the NRC-2 hitch. Only the B-unit carries the brakestand. TTLX spine cars were mostly assigned to the Santa Fe, and some (TLF51s) even carried ATSF heralds.
