depressed center flat car with covered pipe load is painted freight
car red with white logo and lettering. It was built in September
1940 and runs on Buckeye trucks. The depressed center flat car was
designed to handle oversized
loads that were too tall to allow passage through standard tunnels.
Typical loads included transformers, heavy construction equipment,
generators and marine engines. It required three axle, six-wheel
heavy duty trucks, such as the Buckeye. These
trucks were also used to transport high-capacity gondolas, wrecking
cranes and locomotive tenders.
