LD LMT and LT WT??

Ever see this on the side of a freight car? Ever wonder what it means? They are both Acronyms, LD LMT standing for Load Limit and LT WT standing for Light Weight. Load Limit is just that, how much weight the car can handle safely. Light Weight is the weight of the car unloaded. This particular car is a giant QTTX 4-trucked articulated flatcar that can handle over 310,000 pounds! I believe the locomotive is a GE 110-ton, but don’t quote me on that…

Have something to add?
