Re: [EXTERNAL] F&C's Pennsylvania F28 Well Hole Flat Car kit #8450 question

Bill;

Oh, and sorry, the F28 was not technically a well hole, but just a well flat. The drooped side members and shallow well are confusing, but then again, this was PRR's first entry into a really heavy duty turbine/generator hauler with relatively high clearances, so they didn't do a complete depressed center type of design. They left that step until they decided to do the F29. The F37B were true well hole flats. The late F47 (not of interest to you) were convertible to partial well hole. The F25, which were coolest of all, some of which were converted to diagonal plate loaders, were partial "gridded" well holes, but also not true well hole flats.

Again, if you'd like to discuss further, or see pics, let me know!

Curious if anyone here has built or can comment on Pennsylvania F28 Well Hole Flat Car kit #8450 issued by Funaro & Camerlengo? Was the F28 their most numerous well hole type?
