Flat Car with Missile
Great Northern
No. 1225

Bachmann lists this car as being a Great Northern lettered item, though the catalog's flat is basic black with no printing on it.  I have no located any examples of this model to confirm its actual production or appearance to date.

Flat Car with Missile
U.S. Air Force
No. 1225

One of four new rolling stock items added to the Bachmann HO-scale line in 1974 is the 52-foot Depressed Center Flat Car with Missile Load.  Bachmann lists the car as being a Great Northern lettered item, though the catalog's flat is basic black with no printing on it in the 1974 picture.  Listed again in 1975 as a new item, this time out the flat is listed as being lettered for U.S. Air Force, though it appears to be the same undecorated flat from the 1974 catalog.  The car carries a $4.00 suggested retail price in 1974.

The tooling of the flat car and its triple trucks appears to closely resemble Roco's similar item produced for AHM beginning in the late 1960s.  The model has remained with Bachmann through current times and has received revisions including knuckle couplers and metal wheels as part of the company's Silver Series HO-scale freight car line.
