Re: Photo: SP Flat Car 43595 With Transformer Load

This car is unusual in having leaf springs instead of coils. I couldn't find any mention in Tony Thompson's book of leaf springs. The car is an F-50-12 built in 1928-29. The two photos I found in his book appear to have coil springs, and the GA diagram has no call-outs for any special equipment.

Yours Aye,
