Same, just one of the few KTTX versions done before the changeover to RTTX conversions.  You can either remove the center hitch on an RTTX and renumber, or wait for that version to be done by BLMA

So KTTX flats are in the future? And if so, I'd like to see some TT2 hitches.

Thanks for confirming that, Robbman. I was hoping that I could find some evidence that the F89J's made it north of the Border.

One other item, Robbman. Did the F89J's ever have container pedestal's installed?

This is the first subject I've seen on Facebook. By Tom Mann no less.

None of those are TT2 type hitches.

The TT2 looks like an A frame with the hitch plate at the top.  Trying to find a picture seems to be impossible.


Here is an HO version of it.

Pretty sure the F89Js didn't get TT2s...

Not while in TTX service.

RTIX has a couple that have frames added to carry 20' containers for used ties

Wasn't sure which flats did get TT2s

Thanks Robbman. So no COFC service for these, just containers on chassis.
