PROTOTYPE AND BACKGROUND INFO:
A well car, also known as a double-stack car, is a type of railroad car
specially designed to carry intermodal containers used in intermodal
freight transport. The “well” is a depressed section which sits close to
the rails between the wheel trucks of the car, allowing a container to be
carried lower than on a traditional flatcar. This makes it possible to carry
a stack of two containers per unit on railway lines wherever the structure
gauge assures sufficient clearance.
Advantages to using well cars include increased stability due to the
lower center of gravity of the load, lower tare weight, and in the case of
articulated units, reduced slack action
