These Pennsylvania Railroad wood-decked 30 foot heavy-duty flatcars had a loading capacity of nearly 200,000 lbs when upgraded to the Crown 2F-F1 cast steel trucks modeled in this kit. These flatcars were originally designed in 1913 (drawings are dated 11-21-13) and, at their peak in the 1940's, there were over 100 in use on the Pennsy roster with some of them surviving into the 1960's.
