    Here is my flat bed car with trailers. You would think with all the cars I posted, I would be running out of photos but I have quiet a few left.

    Here is a picture of a flat car with bulldozers. Need to figure something else besides the rubber bands.

    Chain tie-downs.

    Or paint the rubber bands silver and call them duct tape.;)

    I've had this flat bed I think since the 1960's. The stakes on it are metal. A little off focus.

    The flats I used to see at the paper mills only had two wood stacks on both ends. Logs stack on sideways.

    AHM FM dummy goes with the AHM FM engine I posted in Locomotive of the Day. This dummy is ultra light. It will need some serious weights and intermountain metal wheels.

    Make that three, if using a time machine going back to June of 1974:

    Interesting... mine had a different road number...

    I did find another one at a train show a few years ago to add to my "nostalgia fleet", and it has the same road number as yours.

    One of the reasons I like your posts - so many memories.:)

    I found this Bachman 6 Axle flat car of all places in a box where I keep paint brushes and supplies. Not sure what went on it though. On the diorama with the new hill that is not permanently installed. Will need to hot glue it down and put bushes and fallen rock and other scenery where the two meet so the line won't show.
