Specialized Freight Cars

At any time, one or more of the following specialized freight cars will be found on the Carolina Division, either waiting for a load, or taking one out.

Depressed center flat cars are used when the load is too tall for a normal flat car.

Schnabel cars are a unique type of freight car. The car can be separated and the load is joined between the two half's of the car, with the load becoming an integral part of the car.

Well flats are used when the load is narrow and too tall for a depressed center flat car.
