Flat car ID help please

Bruce Smith



We need some help in identifying a flat car in the attached photo. No, not the 1st one, that’s too easy! 😉  Rather the second one, carrying the transformer. As noted, the date is 4/7/31 and the location is Detroit’s Springwells Station. One notable feature of the flat is the height of the deck above the coupler housing. The end appears pretty tall (for a flat car). It appears to have 10 stake pockets and is likely about a 40’ car.
