MTL Gunderson Husky Stack well car

In this month NSR, Kirk mentions that MT is going to produce a new cast metal with plastic detail 70' Gunderson Husky Stack well car that will fit MT's new 48' and 53' containers and it will come with a new ASF ride control truck. I wonder if this is the 48' footer or the 53' footer all purpose. Anyway it goo to see some new players in the intermodal world.

Which ever side of the track I am on is the right side.

There's an ad in the current N Scale mag...and I also am curious as to whether it's a 48 or the AP 53...given that I just built four AP 53s from N Scale Kits...@Shipsure?

I was just scanning the Jul/Aug N Scale and saw that ad also.  I was surprised no one here had mentioned it yet. lol

Haven't seen the ad yet, but I'm all ears.  (If only it were something other than a Gunderson...)  Since they have just released a 53' container, I would expect the well to be 53'. Time will tell.

I did pick up a new MTL 53' AX Sun container recently and was pretty happy with it.  The corrugation style is a bit different than the comparable Kato container, which is nice.  But sadly the overall dimensions, including the pin spacing, are a little bit different, so they don't stack seamlessly, and the MTL is a tight squeeze in a Kato Maxi-IV.  FWIW, the yellow panels appear to be printed with an ink jet, so there is some very subtle speckling apparent up close; not enough to bother me though.

Didn't Micro-Trains do a 48' Gunderson in Z scale? Maybe this is the same prototype? A 53' stack should fit in the top position and would make sense with the release of a 48' container.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make it a 53' version  :) :) :)

53' is a Huge gap in N scale, the 48' versions has multiple choices already. (4 manufactures in fact)

Only in the single car area; DI has the Maxi IV which are 53', and BLMA has 53' Spines...

Excited to see what MTL does.... but....

What the world really needs is a NSC single 53' well car (besides the one that may or may not be made by Dan Huberman)

Modern Canadian modelers could use dozens of them.

I think we'd all like some Thrall, Trinity, NSC etc 53' wells and I'd love a JA 53' spine....

A 70' car would be the 48' well.  Which if you ask me is the hugest disappointment I could imagine.

You must not have seen Athearn's most recent tank car offering...  :trollface:
