BNSF adds to railcar fleet
By Christian Shelton16 November 2018
USA-based multi-modal third-party logistics service provider BNSF Logistics has added a 20-axle railcar, the Texx 900, to its specialized railcar fleet.
This 20-axle shiftable depressed deck flatcar is designed to move heavy haul and over dimensional loads up to around 900,000 pounds (408 tonnes) and can shift up 13 inches (330 mm), down 11 inches (280 mm), and 14 inches (356 mm) left to right. The deck space for cargo is 40 foot long, 4 foot high, and 9 foot, 6 inches wide (12 x 1.2 x 2.9 metres).
“We are excited for this new addition to the BNSF Logistics rail fleet. The Texx 900 is one of three similar cars in North America and the only of its kind available for booking outside a private fleet,” said BNSF Logistics president Dan Curtis. “We are so proud of our engineers for their relentless work to restore this car to be a lighter, stronger asset.”
The Texx 900 is available for customer use immediately, said BNSF Logistics.
