WM F-11 well-hole flatcars 6010-6011 were built by Greenville Steel Car in November 1953. These sturdy 90-ton cars were used to carry various oversized loads all over the US. It was very common to see these cars carrying hydroelectric power components from Allis-Chalmers in York, PA, but this is by no means the only customer who utilized them. The model features two removable floor sections as per the prototype, which, when removed, stick to the end decks with magnets so they won’t get lost. Stenciling on the car indicates that it is not to be run empty with the floor removed, but it may just be too cool not to do it! The real WM 6011 can be seen today at the B&O Railroad Museum in Baltimore, MD.  We hope to offer loads for these cars in the future.
