The Gunderson AP53 cars are long low-sided single unit, double stack cars, taking 2 20' or one 40-53' container in single or double stack mode or can take one 53' trailer or two 28' trailers.

In 2001 FEC purchased cars 70000 through 71124 and in 2005 cars 71650 through 72809, a total of 2285 cars in use through the early 2000's until the present day. They are still regularly seen in intermodal consists today.

These low lying cars in their different FEC paint scheme provide an alternative to the TTX well cars seen in many intermodal consists.

Whilst any of the cars run in Florida East Coast Railway paint schemes, TTX do run these cars as DTTX cars in the series DTTX 469216 to 471999. However, in DTTX use, TTX run these cars without their hitch tops, and are only used in CoFC service. This version can be built using the kit.

Greenbrier® Gunderson are still manufacturing the car in 2016, and details
of the current cars can be seen on the Greenbrier website.
