  1. BN Flatcar, undefined

    BN Flatcar, undefined

    Unidentified as to nature of use, appears to have a small shack on one end. Bears number BN 968710
  2. Bogies?


    What appears to be axels or freightcar bogies seem to be covered on this IC flatcar. They don't seem to covered very well, let alone tied to the car for that matter.
  3. Flatcar with sides

    Flatcar with sides

    Not sure what it's loaded with, but this flat is in good company, a spreader to the right and a 1940's 40' box to the left. The over-patched hopper in the back makes a good modern background. This flat can easily be modelled from a 40' Athearn flat car.

  6. Rock Island

    Rock Island

    A former Rock Island flat, now working for the Iowa Interstate, rests on a spur in rural Illinois.
  7. KRL 340325

    KRL 340325

    In the world of heavy duty flatcars there's the domestic (CN), TTX (QTTX & XTTX) and then there's KRL. Since its big (12 axles!) and red in color, I call it Kirill, a Russian name. Its waiting for a transformer load, there was an equally heavy duty crane nearby to lift it.
