History: Among the earliest types of freight cars, flatcars continue to serve as a valuable part of railroading. Flatcars are used to move a wide variety of loads which do not require protection from weather. These cars, are constructed with steel underframes, wood floors and stake pockets on the sides and ends for fastening tie-downs that keep loads from shifting.

Logging flat cars are a specialized type of flatcar converted to carry logs, with the addition of log bunks or upright stake posts secured in stake-pockets available on the side of the flatcar.
