Re: Heavy duty flat on ERIE in 1953
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Ed, I thought the ERIE had a four-truck flat as pictured in that ad, but after going through ALL the diagrams in the ERIE diagram book available on Fallen Flags (more convenient that actually getting out my copy!) I find that the multiple-trucked cars (more than two, obviously) were all depressed-center cars.
Nice work with your model, BTW.

The flat car itself may be from the D&H, which had direct connection to GE's Schenectady Works and also with the Erie at Binghamton.
