The flat car is perhaps the oldest of railroad cars, predating
even the steam locomotive. From the very beginning, it was useful for
commodities that could not have fit into a covered car. As far back as
1834, the horse-drawn Granite Railway in Quincy, Massachusetts ganged
four of its four-wheel flatcars together to ship 60-ton granite blocks
destined to be made into columns for the new Boston Court House.

On its customer Web site, the Union Pacific Railroad
characterizes modern flat cars like this model as available
“in a variety of lengths, tonnage and capacities for
specialized commodities that are not subject to damage from the
elements.” Attributes are listed as “easier to load
and unload freight,” “can drive machinery directly
on to the car,” and nailable wood (as in our model) or steel
floors that allow “nail blocking and bracing to the floor for
a damagefree, secure shipment.” For shipping large or bulky
items, from machinery and vehicles to steel plates, pipes, and beams,
the flat car has been the solution for nearly two centuries.
