Auto Frame Load Kit - for your Walthers 89ft ACF Flatcar. This kit represents the DECK, LOAD & CRADLES ONLY. You provide the Walthers flatcar model.
This is an "Intermediate to Advanced Skill Level" kit which produces a unique and iconic load still seen on the rails today. Please email us with any questions.
Sorry, this kit will not work on an Athearn 85ft car due to its short length.
The load represents 1994 Ford Crown Victoria Frames – 5 stacks per 89’ flatcar, PLUS the Ajax Brake Wheel & Stand.

Design & Instruction credit goes out to Mr. Sean Steele for his hours of development, testing and tenacity in realizing his vision of this model.
The frames, cradles and tie downs are produced in a rust colored laser-cut material which is easily painted with brushed or spray paints, and adhered together with ACC / Superglues.
Each kit features a "new" deck overlay which is specific to the flatcar manufacturer, with keyed holes cut in to accept the kit's parts.
