Re: Boiler Load On Flat Car

Bruce, the first digit is definitely a 9 - because that is the only
possibility for a Santa Fe flat car at this time.

So 907x5 means that it is an Ft-P in series 90701-90850. These
were 50 foot flat cars built by ACF in 1930.

Neat photo!  Flats are:

WP 2614, reweigh ORO 5-45.  Of interest are the stencil that probably denotes centerline loading issues and the chalk mark "Birchfield" just to the left of the WP.

ATSF ?07?5 (could be 30735), class Ft-?
