89' O gauge flatcar

Designed with a 1:48 scale deck to look and operate nicely with your rolling stock, this flatcar is milled out of 3 pieces of white maple with a CNC milling machine.  The 3 pieces are then glued together in a jig. The cedar deck is then separately applied. This custom machined train car is considered O gauge rather then O scale because the trucks are located too close to the ends.

Features:
