Intermountain Railway Co.'s dealer newsletter stated that following
the may/June delivery of the 70t flat will be bulkhead flat car

Probably not, Andy. When the Santa Fe's Ft-V class were rebuilt as

towards the center, as well as end bulkheads. Modeling all that
would require a lot of new tooling.
