PROTOTYPE HISTORY:

ntroduced in the early 1960s, the Trailer Train (now TTX Company)
F89F flatcar has been a mainstay of contemporary railroading. A product of Bethlehem Steel Company’s (BSC) Johnstown, PA plant, over 9,000 of these (89’ 8” over the strikers) cars were built throughout the 1960s. Visually distinctive from other long flatcars of their era thanks to their “C” channel side sills, these versatile cars were adapted for many types of service and loadings over the years, ranging from Trailer-On-Flatcar (TOFC), to autoracks, to structural steel loading. While the majority went to Trailer
Train, many were built for various railroads, typically for autorack service. Many were “de-racked” in later years, being reassigned and equipped for other service - TOFC, vehicle loading, pipe service, etc.

This Athearn N-scale model was designed from the start to incorporate as many prototype details and variations as possible, based upon field measurements and builder diagrams, in order to appeal to modelers of multiple eras. Many new body variants, and other separate details were created, allowing us to accurately offer these cars in their different configurations over the years. With the addition of the Whitehead and Kales autorack, The F89FH now has available Bi-Level and Tri-Level autorack variants. You can rest assured of its smooth performance, thanks to a die-cast frame for reliable tracking, and our newly tooled N-scale 70-ton
ASF Ride-Control trucks, and metal wheels.

Operationally, these cars are appropriate for any layout set from the 1960s to the early 1980s. The Auto Racks would be fastened to the 89’ flatcar for auto service from Detroit.
