Jumbo Pressurized Gas Tank Car for hire from January

With GATX you stand out from your competitors: If you hire the new pressure gas car in jumbo format now, then from January on you will profit from the considerably greater load capacity – with an unchanged distance between outer axles!

Your company transports under pressure liquefied gases by rail? We at GATX have developed a pressure gas car with a volume of 119 m³ which has a distance between outer axles of 13.9 meter like a standard LPG car. This new jumbo pressure gas car with a length over buffers of 18.8 meter combines a reduced tare weight with an increased tank volume. In order to achieve this expansion of the transport volume with the same distance between outer axles, it is engineered without an underframe.

As you can see: The new GATX car can carry up to 8 % more pressure gas than a standard gas car!

The key data of the new jumbo pressurized gas tank car from the house of GATX:

  • Tank volume 119 m³
  • Tank code P27BH
  • Tare weight 32.5 t
  • Total weight 90.0 t
  • length over buffers 18,800 mm
  • distance between outer axles 13,900 mm
  • Lowest filling temperature – 40 °C

GOOD TO KNOW: The jumbo gas car equipped with crash buffers can also be equipped with additional features in accordance with your wishes such as, for example, Weco couplings.

Pressurized Gas Tank Car in tried and tested GATX Quality

These cars were newly developed by us and are manufactured in our own workshop Wagon Service Ostróda - accordingly, you hire cars with the proven and well-known GATX quality. From January, 2018, we will be producing more than 30 cars per month for you.

We are really looking forward to presenting the new member of the GATX family to you. We will gladly also discuss with you the many possibilities of adapting the gas cars to your individual specifications.
