Interesting, although why it was called a Lionel flatcar is questionable.....if anything, it should have been called a Menards flat car....

Scales Modeled: O GAUGE
USA MENARDS/LIONEL SPECIAL by BENZ

Lionel trucks & couplers. + a modified Menards paint stir stick. Makes it a Menonel flatcar or perhaps a Lionard flat car. Great outside the box thinking Ben. One cannot beat homemade.
