Can anyone suggest proper cribbing for a boiler load such as this?

Bob,

And it's on a WP flat car. WP 2614 was part of series 2401-2700. These were ordered from Mt. Vernon, but actually built by AC&F. They are 50' cars, and were a match for series 2351-2400 built in 1937 by PC&F. Chad Boas offers a resin kit that matches either group.

Yours Aye,


Garth Groff  🦆

Description: "Two flatcars with boilers, Birchfield Boiler. Giant boilers wait on flatcars for shipment to Southern California. The largest will be installed in the new building of the General Petroleum Corp. of Los Angeles. The Birchfield Boiler facilities can be seen in the background. The plant was also completing an order for 25 large pressure tanks complete with copper heating coils for the US Army in addition to approximately 400 tank heaters for the army."
