HO - RoadRailer® 

The RoadRailer® trailer features identical interior dimensions and a tare weight only 600 lb. heavier than conventional trailers and 1,000 lb. less than a 53-foot "high cube" domestic container on chassis. The RoadRailer® trailer has a unique air-ride suspension system which reduces the trailer weight by hundreds of pounds. The Federal Railroad Administration has increased the permissible length of RoadRailer® trains from 75 to 100 units. Testing is now underway to increase the length to 125 units. In a typical 120 unit trailer piggyback train of 60 89' conventional TTX cars there will be as much as 140 feet of coupler slack. A 200 unit container articulate double stack train has about 10 feet of coupler slack between the loco and the last car. The RoadRailer® train (125 units) has just 5 inches of slack. This reduces damage to the cargo.

Triple Crown® Service's Inc. (a jointly owned subsidiary of Conrail and Norfolk Southern) has 13 terminals Chicago, Illinois; Kansas City, Missouri; St. Louis, Missouri; Dalton, Georgia; Atlanta, Georgia; Jacksonville, Florida; Crestline, Ohio; Detroit, Michigan; Toronto, Canada; Rochester, New York; Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and Newark, New Jersey. In April 1996 Swift Transportation/Southern Pacific Roadrailer® service on the west coast got underway between Los Angeles, CA and Portland OR. Initial plans call for two trains per week each way, working towards a daily service.

Official Authorized Model.  Our skilled designers worked closely with Wabash National's engineering and marketing departments to insure the accuracy of our trailers.
