Proto-Freelance 20' Flat Car Kit

The second of our all styrene car kits and designed to accompany our 20' Gondola, this free-lanced flat car is typical of many such cars used on short line narrow gauge railroads in the first half of the twentieth century. While there is no prototype for this particular car, it was designed and built following standard building practices of the day.

We believe that this highly detailed, easy to assemble kit will make as excellent an addition to any layout as it is on ours!

This high quality, styrene kit features the following:

  • Complete set of FMWs all new 7'x20' styrene frame castings!
  • Available in On3 (FMW-2214) or On30 (FMW-2326).
  • Clevises and stirrup steps by San Juan Car Co.
  • Stake pockets by MacLeod Western.
  • Trucks by MacLeod Western w/NWSL Wheels (while supplies last).
  • Set of FMW-4000 Wooden Brake Beams in styrene.
  • FMW-4001 15″ ACME Brake Wheel w/ratchet & pawl.
  • Set of FMW-4004 Truck Brake Levers.
  • Kadee No. 26 couplers included!
