Designed to fit a 40 foot flatcar, we've found the Athearn and Tichy models, in particular, work the best for the conversion. The Athearn car will require the removal of the existing brake stand, but the included laser-cut deck and brake gear will work equally well on both brands of flatcar. Although most of the open vat cars we researched displayed smooth side sills, we left the molded-in stake pockets in place on our sample Athearn based car pictured above while the Tichy flatcar kit offers the option to leave the stake pockets off. Custom decals, produced by Rail Graphics, are included as well and provide numbers for five different pickle cars under the ownership of G. R. Dill & Sons (G.R.D.X.).
