Prototype Information:
Intermodal container service is one of the most popular types of freight service on rails today. The Maxi-IV car is the mainstay of the
U.S. domestic double-stack car fleet. Providing an optimum balance between tare weight and capacity, the Gunderson MAXI-IV is a
3-unit articulated double-stack car that can handle containers from 20-foot to 53-foot long in the well and containers 40-foot to 57-foot
in the top, or double-stacked, position. As of a result of its versatility and sturdy construction, the MAXI-IV is now the mainstay of the
U.S. domestic double-stack fleet. The popularity of this car on North American rails is underscored by its popularity with model railroaders 

today!

Model Information:
The powerful appearance of this articulated car will be achieved using a metal injection-molded frame, enhanced by the extensive
detail of piping and patterned running boards. Like the prototype, the model will feature two 

different sized wheels! The two end trucks will have 33" scale wheels while the two middle trucks will have 38" scale wheels.
(This is done on the prototype for weight bearing reasons, with the greater weight of the load being 

borne by the wheels of the mid-car trucks than by the wheels of the trucks on each end.)


Features
Perfectly suited to run behind a GE C44-9W, EMD SD90/43MAC, or EMD SD80MAC 
Provides stable operation with or without container loads due to Kato's new innovative heavier material steel compound plastic used for the construction of the well car 
Each container (Sold Separately) has a magnet and a metal plate to hold it securely to the well car bottom or to the top of the lower Kato container
