Me again with more bulkhead photos. While Rock Island did not have this type of bulkhead flat car (they only had Commonwealth units), and they certainly weren't repainted in blue, I say "so what". After all, in my world they've survived through until June 1980, and are doing quite well thank you - maybe they even bought fifty or so of these babies in my timeline . . . . . . And while this photo doesn't feature the Rock unit, it does feature my favorite wrapped lumber load I've created to date . . . . .
