Loading Flatcar

After building the two Cat 60's and making them a flatcar load on a bashed Bachmann flatcar, I was pondering on how Cat's were loaded onto flatcars without a loading dock or dirt embankment.  One day while thumbing through the book "West Side Pictorial" by Mal Ferrell there it was on page 269, the West Side Lumber Company's answer to my pondering.  A short, one truck car with loading ramps that acted as a portable loading ramp and traveled with the flatcar.  It didn't take long to find an archbar truck and scratch up a car with ramps to complete the project.
