CV 40' Flat Car

CV #4287 is totally restored and on display at Willimantic Ct., Oct. 2011.
Central Vermont #4287

Most of the CV 40' or less flat car fleet were of steel centre sill design. A flat of this particular design sat for many years on display in White River Jct. and later moved to the Kendall's collection in Barnet, Vermont, it's current home. The Central Vermont did acquire one 40' flat car that was of CNR heritage, CV no. 4287. I am not sure of the date transferred to the CV, but it is thought to have happened in the early 1960's. This flat was assigned to work train service when on the CV. Originally built in 1914 as CNR #660071, today it is part of the Connecticut Eastern Railroad Museum collection in Willimantic, Ct. The flat was totally rebuilt in 1999...George Dutka
