Re: bizarre MP flat car

John Degnan

I can't speak to the origin of the flat car... but... believe it or not, those trucks are available in HO scale! But you gotta buy a Bachmann Caboose to get them as I cannot find them listed separately on the Bachmann site.

(See attachment)

The only difference I see in them is that the model has two leafs and the prototype has three. But if you wanted to build one of these flats, you're good to go with the trucks, at least.

there were 16 of these cars on the roster in 1959.. Where on
earth did those leaf spring Andrews trucks come from? Perhaps
from a steam loco tender.
