While old trains are cool, I am also fascinated by the massive size and sleek simplicity of modern freight trains. This is a modern tarp covered flat car. Parked next to the 1957 sliding door/roof boxcar it shows how huge modern freight cars are in comparison. I built this from scratch using wood, plastic, tissue, and brass. The trucks, couplings, buffers, and brakes are from Hübner. The signs are printed with an ink jet printer on glossy photo paper. This huge car illustrates why Gauge I often focuses on the 1950s. These long cars have a hard time with the tight curves on many layouts.
