Flatcar A2 (Built ~1910)
exact history of this car is presently unknown, although it most likely
started life as an Atchison, Topeka, & Santa Fe drop bottom gondola
built around 1910. At some point the car was acquired by the
Colorado & Wyoming and by the 1930's it was used as a base for a home
built wrecking crane. The car was later rebuilt to it present
configuration and served the C&W into the 1990's. The Colorado
& Wyoming Railway was operated by the CF&I Steel and ran west from
Trinidad, Colorado to serve coal mines in the area. The line was
abandoned in 2003.
