Hi List Members,
Apparently the May 1999 issue of RMC page 106 has
an image of another of these RUTLAND flat cars, looks like RUT 2762, from the
Dominic Raia collection. I don't know if there was also an article associated
with the image, since I scanned only the image and got rid of the paper copy
when I moved last.
Also, it looks like this same car, RUT 2762, may
still possibly survive at the Danbury Railway Museum, see link

Marty and Friends,
The article was indeed by Richard Hendrickson, and is found in the August
1993 RAILMODEL JOURNAL. Richard said this was the only close prototype he
could find for the Athearn 40' flatcar, due to it having 11 stake pockets on
John Nehrich used the same flatcar to build flat cars and gondolas for
the NEB&W (which is almost a prototype line in its own right). His
gondolas were based on Rutland 2700-series flats rebuilt as gondolas
4500-4505. His article in the the January 1986 MODEL RAILROADER.
flat car 2777 is at Steamtown.

shot. I don't have the article, but back in the early days of prototype
rolling stock modeling (John Nehrich or perhaps even Richard?) did an
article on reworking an Athearn flat to more closely resemble the Rutland

Here is an interesting image. Shows Rutland 2700 flatcar with two short
Freuhauf trailers, being delivered in Des Moines IA. I don’t have a date,
but would say circa 1920.
