Micro-Trains N Scale: 61' Bulkhead Flat Car - St. Louis Southwestern
This 61' flatcar with Barber Roller Bearing trucks was built in the late 1960s for St. Louis Southwestern to carry lumber, structural steel and pipes, as well as logs and other long commodities. The reinforced bulkheads provide load protection as well as prevent shifting during transit. St. Louis Southwestern, commonly known as Cotton Belt, was founded in 1891 and became a Southern Pacific subsidiary in 1932, before eventually fully merging in 1992. It is now a heritage component of Union Pacific.
