WSLCo sand car (SK-42)

( Out of stock )

This kit is a model in 1:20.3 scale of the No. 15 sand car, which was built on a 24 foot, 15 ton capacity flat car originally used as a logging flat by the West Side Lumber Company of Tuolumne, CA. According to Ferrell*, 275 of these cars were in service as logging flats in 1930. The first 16 were built by Carter Brothers in 1899 and the rest by Hammond. The numbers ranged from 1 to 313, although obviously not all numbers were used. The same design was also used as the basis for tank cars, box cars, reefers, wood block cars, gondolas (sand cars), parts cars, and cabooses. Equipment flats for carrying machinery were made by adding two, 2 1/2" X 12" lengthwise planks to each side of the top of the cars. The flats used in regular train service received knuckle couplers around 1940, while the flats used in maintenance-of-way service retained link and pin couplers until the end of operations. Some of these logging flats were equipped with bunks and others had rings attached to the side sills to secure logs.
