Shipping lumber by train is easy for your railroad with a fleet of WaltherMainline 72' Centerbeam Flatcars on the job! Designed to speed loading and unloading, these bigger cars entered service in the 1980s and quickly became a favorite with shippers and customers. These nicely detailed models are based on earlier cars built with oval cut-outs (popularly known as "opera windows") on the centerbeam to reduce overall weight, which are still in service with a wide range of railroads and lumber producers. Other features include:
- Limited edition - one time run of these roadnumbers!
- Heavy die-cast metal underframe for excellent tracking
- Proto MAX(TM) metal knuckle couplersv Correct 36" turned metal wheelsets
For the finishing touch, add Walthers SceneMaster Wrapped Lumber Loads kits (#949-3150 series) available separately.
