Santa Fe 40' Flatcar w/Wedge Plow
6-27705 | Price: $89.99
In snow-plagued areas of the country, various types of snowplow cars were used to keep the tracks clear. One common type of snowplow car used by Santa Fe and other railroads was made from converted flatcars that supported a single wedge plow on one deck end. A box of ballast was often used to balance the weight of the plow at the opposite end. The new Santa Fe Wedge Flatcar by Lionel features an all-new moveable wedge plow mounted on the flatcar wood deck. Lower the plow to clear the track, or raise it into position when it’s not in service.
