The 20-axle shiftable well wagon has a capacity of more than 400 tonnes and can be moved 330 mm up, 280 mm down and 355 mm sideways. ‘The TEXX 900 is one of three similar cars in North America and the only of its kind available for booking outside a private fleet’, said BNSF Logistics President Dan Curtis. ‘We are so proud of our engineers for their relentless work to restore this car to be a lighter, stronger asset.’
