Maxi-Stack IV Container Well Car
The second run of Maxi-Stack IV 3-unit container well car includes four (4) regional road names. Three (3) are on the early version of the car body (unlike Kato's late version) and the fourth, NW Container, is on the late version body. This is the first time we are announcing the Iowa Interstate and Northwest Container runs. With the exception of NW Container, all of these road names can be found throughout the nation. NW Container, out of Portland, Oregon, runs mostly on the BNSF. We are doing four (4) road numbers for AOK, Mass Central and Iowa Interstate. This N scale model features die-cast metal wells with plastic and etched metal details, crisp painting and sharp lettering. They will come with the new BLMA trucks with metal wheels. The end trucks will be the 70 ton version and intermediate trucks will be the 100 ton version. These 3-unit articulated sets come fully assembled, ready-to-run with body-mounted knuckle couplers. The target MSRP is $5 more than originally announced due to the higher cost of the upgraded trucks with metal wheels. We have redesigned the articulators, they were originally the same as the Maxi-Stack III. Now they will allow the car's wells to be packaged in a "3 up" box similar to the Kato box but with a window to display the car. There will be room to package containers with the car.
