                      544 SERIES LUMBER LOADS

Our 544 series family was born out of a need for shorter loads on 50 ft. flatcars. Technically, its a sub category of the 500 series loads. When unitized lumber was first introduced, railroads loaded lumber on the standard work flatcars with forklifts. The units were overlapped and cross banded as per A.A.R. specifications to minimize load shifting. Those railroads who shipped lumber started building in house bulkheads for their 50 ft. flat cars. Later, railcar manufactures made specialized flats with bulkhead  ends. An example of this was the GSC (General Service Commonwealth) 53ft flat cars manufactured a number of years ago. The length was increased for  the bulkheads over the standard 50ft work flats. Below are four variations of 44ft loads. All are three tier loads and are economically priced at $26.95. Directions for loading can be found here.
