The Shawnigan Lake #291 Flatcar with logs load was offered to members as an ‘extra’ item to those who had purchased the original train set. The flatcar was the last item added to the train consist, which was now seven cars long. This log car was a regular McCoy production item, but was included in TTOS Canadian Division car program because of its British Columbia heritage. This Flatcar with logs load has no known variations.
This Standard Gauge car was decorated with a black body and stakes, with white lettering. No TTOS markings or Maple Leaf appear on this car. Type O trucks.
The cost was $ 40.00 US plus shipping. Delivery to members was completed in 1986.
