Reply to "Lack of MTH and Lionel Spined 48' Husky Stack Freight Cars"

I agree- the actual terminology here is "articulated" intermodal well cars. Articulated means the cars share a common truck mount, and "spine" cars refers to the 3- or 5-car sets with a center spine going from truck to truck. They are also articulated, but referring to them as spine cars is correct.

Jeff - I was thinking there was probably some other terminology but, in the interest of time, I decided to go with "spine".  Also, if I had infinite time to spare, I was entertaining the notion of making a mold based on the Atlas Gunderson maxi-IV car sets.  I'm not comfortable hacking up nice new husky stack cars.  They would be all plastic except for the trucks verses die-cast but that's fine for my layout.  And, while I was writing this, I received my MTH TTX 5 car twin stack container set (20-92246).
