Product Information

Piggyback Ramps like those in this easy-to-build Walthers Cornerstone kit are used across the continent for loading and unloading trailers from flatcars. From the 1950s into the 1980s piggyback trailers were driven onto flatcars at yards and terminals. While this "circus-style" loading has since fallen out of favor for trailer loading, many loading ramps are still in place for special loads. They were also found at team tracks where cargo was lifted with a gantry crane. This kit includes four ramps including a wood platform-ramp combination, a small clerk's office, overhead crane and a power pole.
