Standard Gauge British Columbia Railway Bulkhead Flatcar

By Mark Horne

The second most common car in this set terms of production numbers is the #41502 British Columbia Railway bulkhead flatcar with a wood load. One hundred twenty units were manufactured in 1983. This car was of a new design and required special tooling, since Bob McCoy had not previously produced a bulkhead flatcar.

The wood loads, usually made of cedar, were issued with either a ‘CanFor’ labelled load, named for Canadian Forest products, or ‘Weldwood’ for Weldwood of Canada, which is another company in the Canadian Forest Industry.

This Standard Gauge bulkhead flatcar with load was produced with a green body, with yellow, black and white lettering. Type O trucks.

The cost was $ 40.00 US plus shipping. Delivery to members was completed in 1983.
