I’m still not convinced it’s a military car/apparatus…..
That is exactly what it does. The car to car ramps line up perfectly with Athearn flat cars. I originally thought it could be an Athearn when I saw thisLooks to me like one end goes all the way to the ground for a loading ramp and the other end acts as a bridge to the next car.
I concede that it might not be, but I’m confident that it is either based on one or intended (no prototype) to be that. Modern portable tank ramps are set up exactly the same, except they are a modular stacking system that can stow in a flat car. The similarities are too great IMO. Although, odd that it is painted in a USN type color.Maybe because it’s not a military ramp…..?
