    MasonJar It's not rocket surgery

    Since Val's original post has spun of an impressive number of tractor builders/modellers with associated pictures and threads, I thought maybe it was time for some flat car spin offs...

    How's this for a unique flat car load? I think both CN and CP had a whole series of building designed to be transported on 40' flats. Has anyone built any?

    Here's the inspiration from George Elwood's Fallen Flags site:

    Comparing the size, this must be the home of the seven dwarves and the outhouse they built for Snowwhite.:D :D :D :D :D

    Here is one from the Southeastern Railway Museum's website:


    The flatcar: "Built 1965 by Thrall Manufacturing, Chicago. Bulkhead Flat Cars primarily carry pallets of materials such as plywood, sheet metal, ingots, and brick. Donated 1996."

    The engine: "Built 1913, Lima, for use in National Cash Register's Dayton, Ohio, plant. "Fireless Cooker" of type used in manufacturing plants requiring clean environment. Pressurized with steam from a boiler outside of the manufacturing area; generates no smoke during operation. Donated 1965. "

    The engine was loaded on the flat car for the museum's move to it's current location in the '90s and is awaiting restoration.
