PD - looking at your great ambulance flat, NAVY SEAL posted a Wyandotte ambulance as a possible alternative load.  I also thought it would be a great load and commented that I have a few Wyandotte trucks but they seemed too big for any flat. NAVY SEAL felt that the ambulance would fit on a 212 Standard Gauge flat.  Well, that peaked my curiosity, so I dug out my 212 and tried to mount one of my trucks on the flat.  You can see below that it does fit, after a fashion, and by removing the stakes it would center, so NAVY SEAL is correct, even my trucks would fit.  (of course I have nowhere to run a 212 but that's just details

Little big but thanks to both PD and NAVY SEAL/Bob Nelson for the idea, was fun this morning!

Don, that looks outstanding, albeit on a considerably bigger scale than what I tried to pull together. I am unfamiliar with Wyandotte toys, so I'll have to keep an eye out for examples.

The ambulance I used is a Lledo from around 1986. Their stuff is probably closer to 1/64-scale, but I figured in the tinplate world, that's close enough.
