Tangent Scale Models has announced a new run of their General Steel Castings (GSC) 60' flat car, including the PRR F47 in its "as delivered" paint scheme with six new road numbers.
A car of tremendous versatility, these cars served nationwide in service on many railroads starting in 1956, and thanks to the sturdy cast steel frame construction of these cars these cars served in a multitude of services including lumber, wallboard, poles, and heavy equipment services, to name a few. These flatcars were often photographed hauling “wrecked” cars, and many still operate today in various company service roles. GSC, located in Granite City IL, supplied either complete cars or cast steel flatcar bodies to various railroads. Railroads that elected to purchase only the bodies would then equip the cars with components preferred for projected service.
Tangent has made many small enhancements to these cars since their first run a few years ago. MSRP is $34.95 each, and Tangent offers discounts for quantities of 6, 12, and 24 models.
These cars are available immediately.
