Re: Photo: SP Flat Car 43595 With Transformer Load

I agree with Garth and Bruce.
The leaf-sprung trucks look like they were once under a steam locomotive tender.  Someone at SP must have determined the F-50-12 underframe could handle the transformer's weight.  But why not just use a 70-ton flat car?  Length too long?
