Re: Pulpwood flat 555776
Over 100 pulpwood flats (or woodracks) went to the Kiamichi Railroad when it started operations 20 years ago on the ex-Frisco A&A Sub and Paris & Antlers Branches. In the mid-90s, they were converted by the railroad to handle logs instead of 5-foot pulpwood loads by the addition of large side stakes. Most are still in service, used in log-hauling from a woodyard south of Antlers to the G-P paper mill in Ashdown, AR.
In HO and N scale, Walthers came out with a GSC bulkhead flat that can be bashed into a reasonable-looking model of a Frisco pulpwood flatcar.
