I have them also - there are differences in trucks, lower decks,
and upper decks for
the 125 ton 2 truck, 6 axle (versus 4 truck 8 or 12 axle) cars.
It may be possible to
"morph" one of them into another prototype by the addition,
removal or modification of
certain details. I attach the only photo I have of a D&H 2
truck car - note the wood
upper deck and very small triangle anchors on the lower deck.

Late to this discussion, but just
raising my hand here . . .
There were a series of heavy-duty
flats imported by E&P some years ago, in brass. I
have two of them, one an ERIE four truck eight axle
depressed flat, the other a conventional depressed
center four axle flat. But ISTR that either the ERIE
car or some others that they imported were correct for
D&H. I just looked for my four truck car, because
it had some literature in the box, but it’s not easy to
locate in my chaos. Some of the rest of you may recall
these models from E&P and know if any of them were
That’s the first photo of the D&H
12-axle car I’ve seen, Thanks!
I did miss the start of this
thread, so was not aware of the previous discussion on
the 8-axle D&H car. When I “arrived” the discussion
was heavy on the ECW model car, and that’s when I
started getting in on it.

Definitely NOT the D&H flat car that
started this discussion though 😉 Obviously, I was
unaware that ECW did this and frankly the kit
was so problematic that I was happy to stick
with my brass F38. It would appear from the
instructions that there were a significant
number of 36' deck variants of this car beyond
D&H that this kit could also model.
The modified kit does
appear to be prototypical for D&H 16157
(not D&H 16153)
