Trinity 53' "RAF53C" 5-Unit Spine Car
The Models
The Prototype

Finally!  A ready-to-run spine car in N Scale!  Don't worry, we've done our homework!  As always, this project started with actual blueprints and measurements; the result is 100% authentic dimensions.  Furthermore, like the prototype, the N Scale models were designed for versatility.

The models feature a die-cast metal frame and dozens of separately applied plastic and etched-metal components.  From there, each car is painted to exact TTX yellow and lettered as appropriate for the RAF53C fleet.

These cars ride on our all-new 70-Ton ASF Ride Control truck with fine-scale metal wheels!  On top of that, the cars feature body mounted Micro-Trains couplers!  You can bet that empty or loaded, these cars will track, and look great as they glide down your rails.

..

Spine cars are one of the most recognizable freight cars on the rails today.  Named after their simple, spine-like appearance, these versatile cars carry anything from highway trailers, to international, corrugated containers.

Built in late 1997 by Trinity Rail for TTX, these 5-Unit Spine Car's feature TTAX reporting marks.  While very similar to other 53' Trinity Spine Cars, the "RAF53C" class boasts nearly 250, 5-car sets on the TTX roster.

Features:

  • Second Production Run!
  • Ready-To-Run
  •  Die-Cast Metal & Plastic
  •  Fine-Scale Detail All Around
  • Chemically Etched Walkways
  • Accurately Painted/Printed
  • Prototypical Ride Height
  • Collapsed or Raised Hitches!
  • ALL-NEW 70-Ton ASF Ride Control Trucks!
  • ALL-NEW Scale Profile Metal Wheels
  • Body-Mounted Micro-Trains Couplers
  • Four Unique Numbers in each release
  • Assembled Collapsed or Raised Hitches!
Because we order complete sets and in order to have complete sets available for those who want to order them, we do not guarantee specific road numbers when ordering less than a complete set.
We will not duplicate road numbers in your order unless you request it.

Item Description Pricing Order link

Stock Checks:

Inventory is a fluid commodity.  It changes by the hour (sometimes by the minute). To retain our pricing structure we maintain stock levels designed to turnover 6 times each year. We cannot guarantee stock status till we have an order in hand. All product is subject to prior sale. If we confirm that we have it, and, while we are waiting for the order it sells, you would be upset that we did not hold it.
We used to hold items but learned a VERY EXPENSIVE lesson. When we held items for customers’ orders, the order never materialized 80%+ of the time.  We lost out on the orders placed while the item was on hold.  Also we wasted staff time that could have been used to pull actual orders.
Since we are well known for finding older stock the fact that it may not be on our shelves at this minute does not mean we can’t get it. So, as we spell out on our terms pages, we don’t do it anymore.
You may, however, call in and we will tell you if the items are available and if possible attempt to locate what we don’t have while you are on the phone.
