Work Flat 1005

This little yellow car was donated by Museum member Russ St. John of Connecticut, who built it in the shops of the Connecticut Central Railroad.  It is a handy little work flat that can be used to haul ties, tools, rail, etc.  It is also light enough so that four strong people can lift it off of the rails with retractable handles.  It built as number 1197, but was renumbered to 1005 in a 2012 work flat renumbering plan.
