MOC: TTX well cars

Recommended Posts

Using part 87058 in black as a base, I built two sets of 2 articulated TTX well cars. Loaded them with a custom container design I published on Rebrickable last month, which uses the profile brick (1x2 and 1x4) as the base for the walls - seems to give the right corrugated steel look.

Decals are from OKBrickWorks.

Looking at the pictures I might need to raise the end trucks/bogies by a plate - did notice this all the time I ran them on my tracks, but on the pictures it seems the cars are not fully level.

Are you planning on doing an 8w Maersk loco to match?

No plans as of yet - these are the same width as the well cars that come with the Maersk, so 6-wide fits fine for now.

Looking good, excellent use of 87058 and a big improvement on the well car design in the Maersk set.
