Industrial Rail Flatcars

Series 7000 Flat Cars

The Industrial Rail 7000 series flat cars are based on a typical 40' flatcar used on many of the nation's rail carriers. These cars feature simulated wood decks and feature unique pre-mounted freight loads.  These cars were only produced in two road names.  The Union Pacific car was loaded with two speed boats while the Norfolk & Western cars were loaded with Corvettes.

Cars in this series share their basic design with the series 1700 work cabooses, series 7000 loaded bulkhead flat cars, and series 7500 bulkhead flat cars with stakes.

Flat Cars

Among the earliest types of freight cars, flatcars continue to serve as a valuable part of railroading. Flatcars are used to move a wide variety of loads which do not require protection from weather. These cars, are constructed with steel underframes, wood floors and stake pockets on the sides and ends for fastening tie-downs that keep loads from shifting.

These cars have also been known to handled unusual shipments including submarines, helicopters, and buses.
