Why Buy From Trainz?

This is a Bachmann 80501HO Spectrum Blue & Black 380-Ton Heavy- Duty 16-Truck Schnabel Transformer Car (North American style) with gray load and black trucks. The Schnabel car’s unique design allows it to carry extremely heavy or oversized loads, such as generators and transformers for power stations, by making the load an element of the car. The two tapered lifting arms that hold the load resemble a bird’s beak, which gave the car its name—Schnabel is from the German for carrying-beak-wagon (Tragschnabelwagen). Schnabel is a funny name for a seriously powerful freight car.

Gray load and black trucks
