8 axle flatcar

Designed to operate seamlessly with scale rolling stock, this model train car is truly unique. Rather than a model of an actual train car, this depressed flatcar is an original design.

First designed in CAD and then milled from solid, clear white maple, this car is composed of 9 individual parts. The 3 parts which compose the lowbed frame are glued together in a jig.
