Wartime flat car loads update
After verifying this image is in the public domain as a partof the national archives, here is a copy of PT201 on SP flat 79571. Can anyone tell me if somone makes a model of this car? October 1945 ORER shows it as a 52 foot car. From Lee A. Gautreaux's Railgoat SP flat car page, I learned this is a F-50-14 class car with 16 stake pockets, straight side sills and Columbia steel trucks built by the SP in 1937. His site with lots of SP info is at http://www.railgoat.railfan.net/index.htm.
