Is there a straight edge laser cut flatcar deck that is 10 feet wide with straight sides (no cuts for the flatcar stake pockets)? Length does not matter as I have to cut it into a minimum of 3 pieces.
Gary, have you looked at the AMB deck? It has cutouts but the net width may be what you want.

Cascade used scale couple boxes that are very, very narrow so that Kadee 4s need lots of filing to squeeze in from the front of the coupler pocket. Are there any scale size that fit? The Kadee 58s are too wide as are the Accurail scale couplers.
The Kadee 78s are for narrow (scale) boxes.
