The TRHA acquires a flat car!

On Thursday, December 16th, 2010 at 7:00 a.m., McCulloch Movers loaded up our "new" flat car for delivery to Roundhouse Park. It was a little longer than Greg McCulloch could fit on his tracked trailer so he chose to lift the car off its trucks onto a bigger flatbed trailer then load the trucks on top of the flat car. A fifty-ton mobile crane made short work of the three lifts and Greg was on his way by nine-thirty a.m. The flat car was back on its trucks on track 34 at Roundhouse Park by noon. The flat car has trucks fitted with elliptical leaf springs which are more typical of many a caboose rather than a freight car.
