On its customer Web site, the Union Pacific Railroad characterizes flat cars as available “in a variety of lengths, tonnage and capacities for specialized commodities that are not subject to damage from the elements.” Attributes are listed as “easier to load and unload freight,” “can drive machinery directly on to the car,” and nailable wood or steel floors that allow “nail blocking and bracing to the floor for a damage-free, secure shipment.” For shipping large or bulky items, from machinery to vehicles, the flat car has been the solution since the dawn of railroading. Our RailKing models depict the variety of loads that make the humble flat car so interesting to railfans and modelers alike.
High quality, traditionally sized RailKing Freight Cars provide detailed bodies and colorful paint schemes for the O Gauge railroader. MTH makes an enormous variety of RailKing Freight Cars, including many different car types and roadnames. No matter what era or part of the country you are modeling, RailKing is sure to have something for you.
