Bulkhead Flat

Bulkhead Flat
TTX's standard 68-ft bulkhead (62-ft between bulkheads) is a simple and utilitarian design.  With either wood or nailable steel floor and 11-ft high bulkheads that prevent load shifts, the car type handles a wide variety of commodities, including dimension lumber, steel plate, pipe, beams, bars and even coils (some of TTX's cars are equipped with special racks for coils and ingots).  Additionally, the cars transport all sorts of heavy machinery.  TTX owns a large number of modern, 110-ton capacity cars, and in common with other flat cars, either overhead cranes or forklifts can load or unload shipments.
