The piggyback flat car is a custom-made car which Ted acquired at a train show in 2008. The car chassis is a generic chassis and not a Lionel or Gilbert chassis but one offered by many of the AF parts suppliers, such as Port Lines Hobby Supplies. While the car carries a post-war Gilbert number, the number "24593" was one of Gilbert's 5-digit numbers that was never used.
