This model started of as a 42-foot American Flyer metal casting flat car, with simulated wood decking. The model is based on a 1937 Boston & Maine general service flat, 55-ton capacity, of which 35 were still on the Boston & Maine roster in 1959. Holt repainted the model, installed AF trucks and couplers, and lettered with custom transfer numbers and letters from both CDS Lettering and Model Graphics (Woodland Scenics). The simulated wood decks have been painted with flat gray enamel, and then weathered with brushed brown enamel and flat clear lacquer.
