Fun Facts -
Developed at the request by S.P. shippers wishing for a 57 feet of clear space on
bulkhead flats to allow full utilization of 70 ton capacity before it "cube" out.  S.P.
paid Gunderson (GBEC) $12,186 each for bulkhead equipped flats and $10,000
for plain flat cars. It took 10 gallons of Sherwin-Williams "Metal to Metal" Freight
Car paint per car. Bulkhead flat cars were routinely pressed into lumber service
even though they were intended for plasterboard service. Delivered in 3/66, 4/66,
5/66 as 125 plain decks and 125 bulkhead-equipped flats . Still in service as UP MOW
cars in ex-Golden West Service blue.
Context & Operation - 
Since the post war period in U.S., there was a remarkable housing boom especially in
Southern California. Getting lumber from the lumber mills in the Pacific Northwest to
the lumber yards across the nation became a little bit of a challenge due to a shortage of
usable equipment. Solid trains of lumber cars were the norm.  A common sight in the west
were witnessing solid SP trains of lumber crawling up the Tehachapi grade at a snails pace
with engines whining at run 8  or just empty strings of flat cars returning from winding
through the mountain passes on their way back to the Willamette Valley. These solid
empty trains of flat cars were designated by SP as 'XMUG'  (Empty Eugene, OR). Further,
solid cuts of lumber cars from the Willamette Valley headed east over connecting roads.
Model Facts-
Precise tooling and details. Stand-off grab irons, and ladders, coupler lift bars, brake
hoses, metal wheels, fine printing, smooth rolling, multiple car numbers all for your
lumber and general freight needs. The wood planking on the bulkhead will be removable!
Equipped with Kadee #58 couplers. Pre-Order through your dealer or directly!
