L&N Woodrack -- 6


Bob Chapman
 

The last L&N woodrack (yea!). 
 
In the 50s, General Steel Castings offered woodrack kits that several roads purchased and built in their own shops, sometimes with road-specific details. 
 
The Atlas model offers several upgrade opportunities to match the L&N prototype – replace the open grid floor with solid styrene, add ladders, add underbody brake components, add tackboards, add uncoupling levers, and replace brakewheel.
 
Atlas's styrene pulpwood load is comical – huge logs symmetrically placed on either side of the centerline; the cast plaster load is a welcome upgrade.
