Bulkhead Flat

Bulkhead Flat
TTX's standard 68-foot bulkhead (62-foot between bulkheads) is a simple and utilitarian design.  With either a wood or nailable steel floor and 11-foot high bulkheads that prevent load shifts, the car type handles a wide variety of commodities, including dimensional lumber, steel plate, pipe, beams, bars and even coils (some of TTX's cars are equipped with special racks for coils and ingots). TTX owns a large number of modern, 100-ton capacity cars, and in common with other flatcars, either overhead cranes or forklifts can load or unload shipments.
