This is a resin kit (trucks, couplers, decals and weights not included). It is based on a Marine Industries Ltd car but built by Hawker Siddley. These cars were operated by the British Columbia Railway, CN, DW&P, and one or two private lumber companies. Parts include a one piece body with metal and 3D printed detail parts.

Introduced in the early 70s, bulkhead flatcars like this one quickly became favorites of the lumber industry. The cars were large for the era, offering a loading area of 52'8" between the bulkheads. Distinctive, chunky end bulkheads on the cars helped keep lumber bundles from sliding off the ends of the car - a common problem with non-bulkhead cars. When constructed, the cars were used to haul finished lumber from Canadian sawmills, but today are used in all kinds of service including steel, wallboard and logs, in addition to lumber.
