    Does anyone know where I could get the plans for this SP bulkhead flatcar? I've been meaning to do a model of this for some time but need the specifics. Any help would be appreciated.
    thanks in advance

    Well. Looking a little deeper, this is actually a 56'8" car. the 48'6" is just the load space. Again, any help on this is appreciated.

    If you don't get an answer on this board, it is probably because no one here knows the answer. If anyone here knows an answer, they are quick to share. You might check www.sphts.org. Looking through the "Google" search I put up Peter J. McClosky has a web page on Earthlink that is a comprehensive listing of Southern Pacific and related web sites. The url is a long one so I would just enter Peter J McClosky + Southern Pacific in a google search.

    Well. I was snooping around the espee forum files section and came across alink to an sp resin flatcar from Bruce's Train Shop. And, wouldn't you know it, it's the one I was looking for.

    Here's the url for Bruce's. They're in Sacramento, CA.

    http://www.brucestrainshop.com/

    They don't have a picture up there, but I ran in to it in the pictures section of the espee forum on yahoo.
