Re: D&H Flat Car 50000



this car was part of a gun car built to haul coast artillery gun barrels.  the other car was numbered 50001 and they had a special gun carriage suspended between them. When the design of the guns were changed the D&H scrapped the carriage and put two car into general revenue service. They were later renumbered to 16151 and 16152.  There is a photo of the cars in gun service in the Model Railroader March 1963 with a plan drawn to 3/16"=1'-0".
