Specific Item Information: Assembly is simply gluing the log cross beams to the deck, and on the 35ft car the truss rods in the slots in underframe. There are holes in the beam ends for stakes if desired. We used styrene strip, but wood could also be used. They can be used as flatcars without the beams and are also ideal as a basis for other cars like a gondola, crane car, etc.

Prototype 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.

Road Name History:
