Hi,

Forgot to mention, in N scale, Model Power makes a car that is a good match for C&NW 42597. It has crude details, but then upgrading the details is part of the fun!

Hi Ed and List Members,

Looking thru my TCS#46 (1931 CBC), I find photos of the following 45-46 foot flat cars:

CP (number not readable) (46 foot)
C&NW 42597 (46 foot)
IC 61078 (45 foot)
L&N 24560 (46 foot 9 1/4 in)

One of the TSC reprints has a pic of a C&NW flat in this length.

I have a question on 46 ft. flatcars, they seem to be a rare and
unusual
size.

So far while looking in a 1940 CBC I found only two in that issue.
On page 205 has figure 194 a picture of L&N 24560 a fishbelly
sided flattop one built 6-30.

Figure 192 is a plan for a CP car with straight side sills.
With no picture I wonder what number series these were.

I am working on several models in S scale that are this length.

Anyone know of any other roads that used this size?
Ed,

First, you might try searching an ORER... that might be more
inclusive than a CBC ;^)

Second (from Sunshine's all time kit list)

C&NW 46' flatcar 43001,45001 series
TC 46' flatcar 2701 series
