The ancient flat car seen here was discovered along the rail bed of the long abandoned Frank and Grassy Mountain railway, in Alberta Canada. This line, built to service coal mines in the area, was shut down in 1913. The car is relatively intact and appears to be missing it's decking. The trucks and wheels are also gone

I'd sure love to find out how it came to being here.
