    Question Robert Murphy's "Chopped" Bulk-Head Flats Set?

    I remember being able to download & run what I'd thought was some of Robert Murphy's Bulk-Head Car Models a few years ago that represents (ed ) the ones that are found mainly on say; The Union Railroad used for Coil Steel Loads that have had its Bulk-Head Chopped though, & you can still see plenty go along on trains pretty much everywhere. But, IF they're STILL avil., what is the .zip name? Please & thank you.

    Hi,
    Not being from the 'States, I'm not sure what you mean by "chopped"!
    If you mean flat cars without bulkheads, there are several in the library - search for Flat cars and put Robert Murphy into the search box. There are only 18 in total!

    Cheers,
    Ged

    Ged,

    He means that the bulkheads were cut down to a shorter height.

    I mean that instead of them having their full size bulk-heads like they use to, some Railroads like The Union Railroad Chopped-off alot of the bulk-head ends to save clearance ends ( I guess ). They still semi have the bulk-head ends, but not as high. And yes JUST prior to writting the Topic I searched. Usually when that happens and then nothing to avail, that's when I post help & why.

    What ever happened to Robert Murphy?...

    Several sets as mentioned. Search terms "Robert Murphy flat" came up with two pages of results.

    Now that I think about it more deep in thought, YES I've searched this F/L under both His Name and the whole flat-cars section, and now it MIGHT've just been one of those now-gone Mop-House Only Files that sadly didn't make it.

    No, they made it. Just do a file search using "Murphy" under the description. You'll find about 17 pages worth of stuff, the flats being around 2013 or before.

    The flats are there. What's in question were the chopped bulkheads.

    I thought I saw some chopped bulk-head flats there too. If not, my bad. Sorry about that.
