Note 1. “Double-Stack Intermodal Railcars — The DTTX-marked double-stack railcar design enables railroads to carry two intermodal containers stacked on top of each other. Many TTX double-stacks are articulated (sharing wheels between the car’s units), which reduces slack action and improves the ride quality for fragile cargo. Intermodal double-stack wells come in different configurations. The most common are 5-unit, 40-foot articulated railcars for carrying 20-foot, 40-foot, and 45-foot international containers, and 3-unit, 53-foot articulated railcars for transporting 53-foot containers. TTX is a major supplier of intermodal double-stack wells to the industry with a fleet of over 116,000 wells of capacity.”[TTX1]
