This Chattanooga lettered Pulpwood Car is very similar
to TYCO's Southern Railway example. The Chattanooga Pulpwood Car is found in the final Chattanooga Choo-Choo train sets
from around 1990. It is not known to have been available in a brown box as a separate item.
There are at least two variations for TYCO's Southern Railroad 50' Pulpwood Car.
The catalog showed an example that included data on the car. Another example exists with only the Southern Railroad
name and the car's number.

The TYCO Pulpwood Car is a 50' long freight car made up of several
separate parts. The flat car section is a typical TYCO 50' Flat Car that has the upper structure snapped into the flat
car frame. The plastic molded log load is a two-piece casting that fits together down the center of the load.
The upper frame area is a one section bed with raised ends. The car does feature a separate brake wheel that is applied
to one end of the upper frame.
