Freight Car Loads: Generators

Name:Generator
Manufacturer:A.C. Gilbert American Flyer
Product Type:Plastic
Finishpainted & lettered
The GM generator was painted a General Motors color. You will often find this load on A.C. Gilbert American Flyer flat cars, but here Ed used it on a Rex Engineering PRR flat car, with wood cribbing around it. He also placed a wooden crate of spare parts at the other end. The PRR decals used were from John Hall. Also covered in the "Loads for S Scale Open Top Cars" article by Ed in the 2010 Fall issue of the 1:64 Modeling Guide magazine.

This is a relatively simple kit to put together, to build into two power generators (two per package). The kit consists of resin castings, wooden supports, cardboard base, and miscellaneous string and rod. The main photo shows the two generators built, and painted an industrial green, placed on a scratchbuilt 40-foot PRR flat car. Photo #2 shows the parts contained within the kit box.
