I tried to attach it with small chains, but they wouldn't hold it on, so it is bolted from underneath the car.
Replace the chains for show.

Neat looking load and use of a depressed center flat car. I've seen numerous homemade loads over the years on these and the shorter flats.

Think I will. I have to replace a Monon decal that fell off even though I over coated it with some matte clear.

This is a 23830 Piggy back unloader from 1959/60. It comes with a 24550 flat with 2 trailers. IMG_0007.JPG

Thanks guys, sticking with the Monon theme. I don't think this saw much run time and the ramps were still wrapped in the brown paper. Picked this 956 up long ago, I think more than one in a freight train looks better. IMG_0016.JPG
