It was disclosed this week on the Espee list that the SPH&TS is currently
involved in tooling for an SP F-70-10 flat car, as well as additional versions
of bulkheads for the existing Red Caboose F-70-7 flat car. (One early bulkhead
has already been released.) Many SP F-70-10's were converted to TOFC service
by 1955 and the society will be doing a TOFC version with a newly tooled 22'
trailer. And in addition, we were told there are plans to produce one of
the Harriman flat cars -- no doubt they'll choose a version used by SP and
UP. All of the above is injected molded styrene, sold as kits or RTR. I think
the manufacturing will be done by Intermountain.
F.M. Models imported a brass model of an F-50-x flat car (I'm not sure which
one). It was based on a Pacific Electric flat that was equipped with three
water bottles lettered for "Arrowhead Water".
You are right, many SP fans are excited about these models! :-)
Have you thought about doing one of the early Harriman F-50-1,2,3 or 4 series?
