RoadRailer 463491 with Bogey
Donated by Triple Crown in 2011
TCSZ 463491 is a Mark V RoadRailer, used by Triple Crown (a subsidiary of Conrail and Norfolk Southern) from the 1980s to 2015 as an alternative to conventional trailer-on-flatcar (TOFC) intermodal transportation. RoadRailer trailers were built stronger than normal trailers, and suspeneded between two "bogey" trucks rather than sitting on a railcar. The trailers actually formed the body of the train. By using its own rail-friendly trailers, Triple Crown was able to deliver directly from warehouse to warehouse without having to involve a third-party truck carrier. However, changing times and aging equipment forced the RoadRailers into retirement in 2015, and the CRHS is the only organization to have preserved one.
