TTX Rolling Stock (33 items, sorted by item number)



MTH 20-90270 6-Car TTX 50' High Cube Box Car Set

This was part of my 2006 catalog order. I'd been waiting a long time for these and I gotta say it was 100% worth the wait. They are so incredible! I ordered both sets, so now I've got 12 of these bad boys! The paint scheme is crisp and the detailing is very well done. These are definitely up there on my favorites list. I took a couple extra pictures to show them off a bit. These were made by MTH in 2006, and added to my set in January of 2007. Car Numbers: 504112, 504115, 504119, 504120, 504122, 504126

MTH 20-98365 MTA #941422 Flat Car w/Yellow R-17 Subway Car

Quite a nice set. The subway car on top is a fully functioning car, making the whole deal pretty heavy. Built in 2003 and added to my collection in July of 2006.

MTH 20-98511 TTX (#131002) 47' Heavy Duty Flat Car

This car and it's brother below were in the first batch to come in from my 2006 catalog order. They are amazing cars and I know that my intermodal containers will look great riding on them. Built in 2006, added to my collection in November of 2006.

MTH 20-98511 TTX (#131004) 47' Heavy Duty Flat Car

The companion to the car above. Built in 2006, added to my collection in November of 2006.

MTH 20-98575 TTX Center Beam Flat Car w/Lumber Load #84557

Part of my 2007 Vol. 1 catalog order, these are really nice looking cars, and quite long. Made in 2007, added to my set in March of 2009.

MTH 20-98575 TTX Center Beam Flat Car w/Lumber Load #84237

Just like the car above, but a different road number. Made in 2007, added to my set in March of 2009.

MTH 20-98579 47' TTX Heavy Duty Flat Car w/SW-1500 Locomotive

This was part of my 2007 vol. 1 MTH order and it finally shipped in February of 2008. This car was a great deal. Normally, an unpowered switcher engine alone costs around $130. With this set, you get a really nice flat car plus the unpowered switcher for the same $130! In addition to being a great deal, however, it's also a really nice looking car and quite an eye catcher. This is a 2007 model, added to my set in March of 2008.

MTH 20-98603 TTX 60' Flat Car w/(2)M1A Abrams Tanks - 6 Car Set

From my 2007 vol. 2 catalog order. This is a badass set. It has a surprising amount of detail available, if you have the time. Not long after opening the boxes, I found that each car comes with 2 coupler cut bars (one for each side of the car) that can be glued into place. The cut bars are left off because they can only be added if you have curves wider than O-54 (which I do, of course). In addition to the cut bars, the cars also come with long chains and load adjusters. You have to cut the chains to the proper length, and then secure them over each tank by fastening them to the load adjusters, which in turn fasten to the floor of the cars. It was quite a bit of work, taking me about 4 or 5 hours to complete all 6 cars, but it was quite worth it as the result was some very realistic looking flat cars. Well done, MTH. Made in 2007, added to my set in April 2008.

MTH 20-98662 TTX Flat Car w/Bulkheads w/Covered Wood Load #804406

Part of my 2008 Vol. 2 catalog order. Anything TTX is always a good addition. Made in 2008, added to my set in March of 2009.

MTH 20-98662 TTX Flat Car w/Bulkheads w/Covered Wood Load #804125

Just like the car above, but a different road number. Made in 2008, added to my set in March of 2009.

Lionel 6-17589 TTX Trailer Train Husky Stack

Just like the Husky Stack above the real-life versions of this car go though the CSX yard behind my place all the time, so I was really happy to get this. It's a big, rugged car and is highly detailed. This car was built in 2005 and bought by me in November of the same year.

Lionel 6-27523 TTX Trailer Train Husky Stack

This car and it's matching counterpart below were the first batch to come in from my 2006 catalog orders. Amazing detail and quite lovely. Built in 2006 and added to my collection in October 2006.

Lionel 6-27524 TTX Trailer Train Husky Stack

The counterpart to the husky stack above.

Atlas 8908 A-B TTX Gunderson Twin Stacks

Atlas did another run of their incredible twin stacks for 2009 and I ordered this 5 piece TTX set. I also ordered a bunch of 40 and 45 foot containers to place in twin stacks. Wonderul details as always. Make in 2009, added to my set in August of 2009.

Atlas 8909 C-D-E TTX Gunderson Twin Stacks

Atlas did another run of their incredible twin stacks for 2009 and I ordered this 5 piece TTX set. I also ordered a bunch of 40 and 45 foot containers to place in twin stacks. Wonderul details as always. Make in 2009, added to my set in August of 2009.

Weaver MSHIP10LD TTX 40' Fish Belly Flat Car #475083 (2010 Collectors Station Club Car)

The 2010 Weaver Club Car. Very nicely done.

Just like the other 2010 club car, but a different number.
