BNSF inks Schnabel deal

September 9 - Transportation Technology Services (TTS), which was recently acquired by BNSF Logistics, has signed an agreement with Siemens Energy to market and operate the 20-axle KWUX 101 Schnabel railcar.

TTS/BNSF will manage, maintain and have priority access to the Schnabel railcar, which was originally designed for specific Siemens transformers, but has pin locations that allow for the movement of a wide variety of transformer designs, said BNSF.

TTS engineers have also designed adapters that will allow even more transformer designs to be moved using the railcar.

In addition to the KWUX 101 railcar, TTS also owns three cabooses, three more Schnabel railcars, and two 12-axle flatcars - all of which are stored in Rincon, Georgia.
