Re: NORTHERN PACIFIC 41' FLAT CAR

Bill,
were you aware that these company built (from box cars) were built for
non-revenue purposes?

Near absolute lack of evidence that these were ever sent off-line with an
interchanged load.

Subject: [STMFC] NORTHERN PACIFIC 41' FLAT CAR



A question that I have been unsuccessfully seeking an answer for a number of
years might be
more revalent now. Central Valley has recently released a model of a Northern
Pacific 41'
flat car. There is a photo of the model on CV's website. It is finished with
a late lettering scheme.
This is as per a photo that Jack Parker was kind enough to share with me some
years back. I
believe that earlier in its career this car was lettered with NORTHERN PACIFIC
spelled out and
with Andrews trucks. I would like to find a photographic evidence of this so
that i can properly
letter my car with the correct data placement.

Hopefully now that this car is on the market I can finally get an answer.
