Unique PRR Flatcar Load to Model
Author: jtwlunch

Picture from the Hilner Collection a PRR flatcar load somewhere in a Santa Fe Yard.  A unique aerodynamic mobile home for the era.

Looks like Lucy and Desi's 'Long, Long Trailer'!

I'm going out on a limb here, but pretty sure there isn't a Porter on board...

I got curious after seeing this photo. It isn't the same as the movie's trailer. That was a 1953 36-foot Redman Trailers "New Moon" model.

I don't know where the "aerodynamic" idea came from but this is about as far away from "aerodynamic" as an RV could be.

When interviewing a railroader, I was surprised to find that campers and trailers were built during the steam era. He recounted materials being shipped in and finished product being shipped out by rail on the Wabash at Topeka, Indiana.

Sure looks familiar, that 'Coach' could well be still on use in Northern California.

Look around a mobile home park, you'll probably see one or two.
