New Intermodal Equipment

Greetings Blog Followers,

The ownership of the New York Central Train Layout recently purchased four boxes of Walther's extendable container chassis consisting of eight total chassis kits. As the layout bounces from T.O.F.C. to C.O.F.C. and back management jumped at the opportunity to purchase these kits when they were offered at a very reasonable price.

 The Walther's box containing two chassis kits

The first builds painted flat black, with rims highlighted and mud flaps added. Tires have been lightly sanded to remove shine and nubs. 

Chassis extended to 48'

Rear detail includes painted tail lights, marker lights and mud flaps

Pay no mind to the Nathan's mobile on the track ;)

The second pair of chassis were painted. Here is an orange chassis with matching rims

Jade green chassis with matching rims

All four chassis under 40' containers  

Four chassis, Four containers and two Trailer Train 86' trailer flats

Chassis and Containers on Flat Car equals T.O.F.C. (Trailer On Flat Car)


Four kits built, four more to go. Stay tuned for the next installment.
