The next run of flats will be the G.N. 56000, 66000 and 67000 series and maybe the 69500 series. Theses are 52', 52', 50' and 43'.
Neat! Can anyone provide some prototype history?
Looking at Richard Hendrickson's GN freight car chapter in Dorin's book, Great Northern Lines East, two of these number groups are covered: 69500-69999 (built in 1929) and 66000-66249 (built in 1945).
