ExactRail: HO Scale: GSI 53''-6" Bulkhead Flat Car - ROCK
Building off the success of our popularGSC 53'-6" Flat Cars, ExactRail introduces the newest member of the family, the GSI 53'-6" Bulkhead Flat Car. Learn more about the prototypeHERE.
Initially the Rock Island built their own bulkhead flat cars, but during the mid 1960s GSI began to fulfill this need. We have recreated an example of a 50 car delivery from 1966 (91825-91874). While they have been fmodified, some of these cars can be seen in MoW survive on the Iowa Interstate today!
These cars had a 42' truck center arrangement with a high mounted brake wheel on 8'-6" high bulkheads.

Included with each car is a correct, scale depth, laser cut deck and bulkhead ends. Like with our past bulkhead flats & flat car offerings, and by overwhelming request, these are left separate to be applied by the user which allows those that would like to freedom to weather the decks separately.
Watch the video below for directions and tips for applying the deck.
