64ft Center Beam Pulpwood Car
BAR and MEC Railroads

These unusual center beam cars were used for pulpwood
in New England. Built by Magor in 1964, these 64' cars have sloping floors
to support the sideways loaded logs. 268 of these cars were run by BAR
with running numbers 1100-1367 and 200 by the Maine Central
numbered 1400-1599.

A number of these cars were still in service in 2008.
Some cars were altered by the removal of the center beam
for lumber use.

The N Scale Kits cars have a cast lead free pewter chassis
with etched stainless steel gratings for the floor.
The center beam is supplied and is easily constructed to provide
the main spotting feature of these unusual cars.
