Some additional pictures of 715’s today and, for me, a real surprise. The first picture is the 715 with the solid green Manoil Coupe load. The unloading car is the same one the solid Blue coupe I posted earlier is on, I did not bother to get out the unloader for the green car.
The second and third pictures are of my original 715 That came in the 370 set I received for Christmas of 1952. I was still too young to remember receiving the set. That 715 has a lot of miles on it. Since it was in a set box it came in just the stamped wrapper, not the separate sale outer box. Much to my surprise I just noticed for the first time the truck without the sliding shoe is a 3 spring truck!!! Of course the other alternative is I used to know but forgot. That is too scary so I am going with “first time I ever noticed.”

The other day it was Hudson day. Today it is flat car day. Last
night I was adding my PikeMaster cars to my inventory list.
One was this New Haven flat car. This is a first for me, it has
no road number. Maybe at one time it had a body or a load
that had the road number. If anybody has an answer please inform me.

All the axles are metal so they should roll ok.

Nice cars Broke.

The New Haven flatcar was used to carry a variety of loads. The only version that did not have the number of the car under the small NH on the left side in the picture is the 24564 1960 uncatalogued pipe carrier. The problem is those all had Pikemaster trucks and yours does not.

Tom, I think you got the car id. correct. If you look again at the trucks, they are indeed PikeMaster plastic ones. So most likely the car is a 24564 from 1960. Maybe mopac can confirm this.

Nice cars B.C. It's always fun to have some cars that do something. I never had any as a kid so I have quite a few of the different types.

cramden and Tom, the trucks do kinda look like sintered trucks in the pic, but they are
PikeMaster trucks. Why no road number? The car is so light, I think I will use it to carry my 3
1/64 diecast farm tractors. That should add some weight.

Cramden, I looked at the trucks several times blown up on my 40” 4K monitor. I really thought they were sintered. If plastic Pikemaster then it is absolutely the 24564 as you say.
