1977 by thrall Car Company and runs on Barber Roller Bearing trucks.
Major production of Thrall’s 60’ loading length
Centerbeam bulkhead flat car began in 1977 with orders from Burlington
Northern, Milwaukee Road, Union Pacific and

faster lading and unlading of lumber products.
Previously, lumber was generally shipped in box cars, bulkhead flat
cars, straight deck flat cars and sometimes gondolas.
