The 50-ton flat car model was a one-piece car body casting kit made out of zamac (a zinc, aluminum, magnesium, and copper alloy). It was available in scale (ID #9) or hi-rail (ID #10) versions. Trucks were available separately, but the kit did not come with them nor decals. It did include wire brake staff, plastic brake wheel, and dummy plastic couplers. The product was reviewed in the January 1963 S Gauge Herald (see Online Article link). It was listed in the 1968 S&P Distributors catalog (see Supplemental link). Dick's model has been painted and lettered for the Delaware & Hudson.
