This model started of as a 42-foot American Flyer metal casting flat car, with simulated wood decking. The model is based on a 1956-60 Lehigh Valley from a series which were equipped with jacks and chains for early TOFC service, then they were used in general flat car service, as modeled here. Late 1950s to early 1960s appearance for this model. 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.
