USMRR Nine-Stake Flatcar
The US Military Railroad was established to help coordinate the many small railroads into one large useful system. To this end, new rolling stock was ordered, and the flatcar, became one of the most versitle cars on the lines.
This nine-stake flatcar can be built with the brake wheel on the deck as shown or attached to the end sill. Both versions have been noted in photographs from the period. Wood stakes are included to help hold on the loads. Photos of these cars show loads of lumber, rail, barrels, and even piles of dirt!
The model features laser-cut wood and cardstock components with hardware in plastic and lost-wax brass. Less decals, trucks and couplers.
We are having the wood beam trucks from the Civil War era made in brass in both HO and O.
