This rack can be used in a yard scene or an industrial area wherever hopper cars or tank cars need to be inspected, It has a swing down platform which can be raised out of the way to move cars along the track. It stands at about 7 1/2 inches tall. The stairway has been redesigned to offer a more compact footprint. Piping can be added to make the inspection rack a loading rack.
The superstructure of the maintenance platform has been redesigned to look less bulky and the stairway moved to the side to save space. This platform sits higher than a standard loading dock to allow maintenance personnel to work on the upper levels of the train. The platform is approximately 3 inches wide by 9 inches long and 2 3/4 inches high. All platforms come standard with a guard rail and two lamp posts (12VDC). Platforms can also be assembled with the stairway on the end so rolling stock on two parallel tracks can be serviced. Guard rails would extend along both sides of the platform with two gates on each side for access to two parallel tracks. Just contact us with your specifications!
