The Finest Flatcar on the Market

Recently, Tangent released a new run of flatcars–the GSC 60′ Flat car.  B. Smith and I find it to be the finest flat car on the market today.  There are a lot of other good ones by Exactrail, Intermountain and Genesis, but Tangent Scale Models just nailed it with this project.  Here are a few photos from our layouts of the new car.

Here's the ICG version on my layout.  It is essentially stock except I lightly weathered it and  installed semi-scale wheels.

Tangent really captured the essence of this car!

The BN version is a little too new for my emerging layout era, but it too looks great!
