NLOE’s Long Island Centerbeam Lumber Flatcar by Lionel®
The Nassau Lionel Operating Engineers presents our scale 2023 Long Island Centerbeam Lumber Flatcar. This is a unique club car that will complement your postwar Long Island engine consists.
This Standard O gauge car was designed by NLOE with Lionel. America’s construction and lumber industries rely heavily on the country’s freight railroads to move lumber and wood products, including milled lumber and other construction panels such as wood particle, which is used to make furniture.
Centerbeams are preferred for lumber transport because they can be loaded and unloaded simultaneously from both sides, allowing them back into service quicker. The standard centerbeam flatcar can carry about 200,000 pounds or more and is also used to carry other construction materials, such as wallboard. One centerbeam railcar carries enough framing lumber to build about six homes.
Our Centerbeam Lumber Flatcar has a removable load that is modeled as "wrapped" lumber bundles.
The flatcar features:
- Die-cast metal trucks with operating couplers

- Dimensions: Length: 13 1/2"
