Re: Revell Flatcar

Yet the photos and plans for the CB&Q FM-13 flat car, which has fishbelly sides, show a fishbelly underframe. And I think some other roads' flats with fishbelly sides also had fishbelly underframes. The next class of CB&Q flatcars, the FM-14, did away with the fishbelly sides.

As for whether the Atherarn underframe is close to what the FM-13 had, I don't have one so I can't say.

Rich, I don't think any flatcar ever built had an underframe that
looked like Athearn's. They put fishbelly underframes under their
gondola and flat car -- cars that had fishbelly sides for strength!
