Kansas City Southern 50' Sieco Pulpwood Flat Car #607150
Atlas Model Railroad Co.
The pulpwood car was designed out of necessity, as previous logging style cars were rebuilt out of boxcars or gondolas. The new design made it easy to haul tree trunks, branches and other cuts stacked in rows of two (with the ends facing out) between two bulkheads bracketing each end. This car is modeled after a SIECO design, with over 800 delivered in the early 1970s to the Southern Railway, and subsequently sold to other railroads and paper mills. As demand for pulpwood at mills has slowly decreased, these cars still serve a vital purpose, hauling logs, telephone poles and other long objects lengthwise between the two bulkheads.
