Re: Other Lisle highlights
Have you thought about doing one of the early Harriman F-50-1,2,3 or 4 series? A 40' 10" steel flat car with fishbelly sideframe (Harriman), 12 stake pockets, and a wood nailing strip between the stake pockets. Used in revenue service from about 1904-1908 until the late 1950's on both the SP and UP in large numbers. They remained in service and MW service for a long time. A model of this car has never been done in HO scale before as far as I know. See the SP freight car bookVol 3 on flat cars for photos, diagrams etc. I think I have measurements of one. Many were delivered with wood side boards. Many had beet racks and some had low wood sides and were even moved to gondola numbering.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
F-50-1 1000 for SP.,200 for UP
F-50-2 2100 for SP, 850 for UP
F-50-3 700+ for SP
F-50-4 2100 for SP etc
I think there would be a large market for these from SP modelers.

To expand on Bill's post.
Chad is open to doing more flat cars. Please be able to supply enough info for him to build a master with your request. He needs about 30 orders to make a model worthwhile.
