    Default Spine update (56k warning)

    Finally getting the first 3 and 5-unit trailer spine sets cranked out.










    Heavy containers on a 3-unit spine car. When containers are heavy, the neighboring platform that shares an articulated truck must remain empty.
    Each heavy box gets supported by 2 sets of trucks, and the empty platforms function more or less as 30-ton drawbars.





    A 3-unit empty in the TTAX 355xxx series.





    A 3-unit with mixed containers and trailers.





    This skin will eventually be put on a shape for a reefer trailer with underbelly fuel tank.





    A 3-unit, all-trailer set.

    A 5-unit "heavy".





    A 5-unit, all-trailer arrangement.









    Some rusty wheel rims on those unkempt intermodal drayage fleets.





    Another 5-unit, all trailer setup.









    Another skin that will ultimately be on a reefer trailer shape that Rowie has in his "to-do" queue.





    A 5-unit empty set, with 3 hitches erect and 2 hitches collapsed down.
