FC03 – D&RGW 42′ Steel Flatcar (6500 series)


SKU: FC03 Categories: , ,


Beginning in 1939 the Alamosa shops rebuilt 28000 series standard gauge gondolas into 45 of these one of a kind 42′ fish-belly flat cars. Rated at 40 Tons, these were the heaviest cars built for the narrow gauge division. Over the years several adaptations were made to specific cars for special services.

On August 10th 1955, two of these cars, 6526 and 6527 had bulkheads installed to ship wallboard to Farmington to support the oil and gas boom of the 1950’s. Both of these cars survived until 1967 but where “forgotten” in the Farmington yard when the last train left. In the end both cars were scrapped.

These cars were box car red with black lettering.

Our products are printed in a Photopolymer Resin. This liquid resin becomes a solid when exposed to UV light. For those further interested in the scientific details, here is the Wikipedia article with the details.

As such, it is highly recommended to paint all models as part of the finishing process or at minimum prime them to protect the model from continued exposure.

When you receive your items you may notice some small post-production markings on the products. These are unavoidable in the production of the models. A small amount of work could be necessary to prepare the model for finishing.

Items that are labeled as “in stock” are ready to be packaged and shipped within a week of purchase.

Items that are labeled as “backorder” are produced on demand and will take 1-2 weeks to produce and ship out.

We strive to produce merchandise of the highest quality. 3D printing is a relatively new manufacturing process and we are exploring the limits and boundaries of this technology. We aim to provide our customers with consistent quality; unfortunately, when exploring new technologies, there are times where this might not be the case. Due to the hands-on nature of the production and post-production; issues may arise. Please feel free to contact our customer assistance department with any issues or concerns.  We appreciate your continued patience when issues do occur going forward.
