Athearn 27630 85' All-Purpose Flat Car Question.
Author: hartrick24

Would these cars be the cars I would use for pipe loads? I have loads for 3 cars and I'm ready to start my next project. I'm not sure what would be the right car to use.

Thank you
Steve H...

 Well, more than likely on the prototype they removed the wheel guides and then added risers (bracketed wood supports) in addition to winches with vinyl straps to hold the load in place. Here's something similar I did a few years ago.....

Most pipe-carrying TTX cars use PTTX reporting marks and there's numerous photos within various sites to help you along....
