Re: What Is This Flatcar Load?

Jerry Hamsmith

Bill and all –
The car in question is a CB&Q FM-11/-11A.  850 cars were built by the railroad in 1928 through 1930.  The cars were 45 feet long and many lasted in revenue service through the merger.  Also, a number of cars were converted for use in TOFC service beginning in 1953.
Ed Rethwisch and I have created and sell HO scale resin kits for this car.  If you have any interest in acquiring a kit, please contact me, OFF LIST, at hammersr at aol dot com
