Built for loads that comprise a large number of heavy pieces, bulkhead flat cars provide the security of strong end walls to prevent a load from shifting. Common cargos include utility poles, structural steel, pipe, steel plate, and packaged lumber. Our modern-era model features roller-bearing trucks and a removable load simulating dozens of packages of lumber, colorfully shrink-wrapped to advertise the lumber company that produced them.
Did you know? Because of their light weight, empty bulkhead flats are often restricted to a train speed of 50 mph. Above that speed, "hunting" can occur, in which the car's trucks wobble side to side and could possibly derail.
