  • Kato 30-9045 HO Gunderson Maxi IV 3-Unit Well Car TTX DTEX #732958 Yellow White Black NIB RTR

    These hardworking cars are the mainstay of the U.S. double-stack fleet. The model features a metal injection-molded frame plus piping and patterned running board details. On the prototype the two middle trucks carry the weight of the load and this model is equipped with 38" scale wheels on the middle trucks and 33" scale wheels on the end trucks. Any standard HO container will fit into the wells. Kato 53' container sets (sold separately) are equipped with magnets to ensure they sit securely in the well and remain in place during operation.

    Prototype Information

    Intermodal container service is one of the most popular types of freight service on rails today. The Maxi-IV car is the mainstay of the U.S. domestic double-stack car fleet. Providing an optimum balance between tare weight and capacity, the Gunderson MAXI-IV is a 3-unit articulated double stack car that can handle containers from 20-foot to 53-foot long in the well and containers 40-foot to 57-foot in the top, or double-stacked, position. As of a result of its versatility and sturdy construction, the MAXI-IV is now the mainstay of the U.S. domestic double-stack fleet. The popularity of this car on North American rails is underscored by its popularity with model railroaders today.

    Model Information

    The powerful appearance of this articulated car will be achieved using a metal injection-molded frame, enhanced by the extensive detail of piping and patterned running boards. Like the prototype, the model will feature two different sized wheels! The two end trucks will have 33” scale wheels while the two middle trucks will have 38” scale wheels. (This is done on the prototype for weight bearing reasons, with the greater weight of the load being borne by the wheels of the mid-car trucks than by the wheels of the trucks on each end.)

    Model Features:

    -Perfectly suited to run behind a BNSF EMD SD40-2 Mid, EMD SD90/43MAC, or EMD SD80MAC
    -Provides stable operation with or without container loads due to Kato’s new innovative heavier material steel compound plastic used for the construction of the well car
    -Each container (Sold Separately) has a magnet and a metal plate to hold it securely to the well car bottom or to the top of the lower Kato container
