Prototype Information:
Intermodal Container service is one of the most popular types of freight service on the rails today.
The Maxi-IV car is the mainstay of the U.S. domestic double-stack car fleet.
BNSF took delivery of their first MAXI-IV's in 2000. Ongoing deliveries of this car have put the total in service on the BNSF roster in the thousands.
They can be seen on virtually any mainline railroad from coast to coast.
The Maxi-IV design provies the optimum balance between tare weight and capacity and have proven to be extremely reliable in service.
The Gunderson MAXI-IV is a 3-unit articulated double-stack car than can handle containers from 20' to 53' long in the well and from 40' to 57' in the top, or double-stacked position.
As a result of its versatility and sturdy construction, the MAXI-IV is now the mainstay of the US double stack fleet.

2011 New production run with newly retooled connection mechanism allows for improved durability and ease of connection!
The model will feature a metal injection-molded frame for improved traction coupled with extensive piping detail added.
