D&RGW Flat car #6216
The Midwest Central Railroad has two 6200 series flat cars that will be restored this year. The railroad has had these cars since the early 80's. Over the years the wood portions of the car have rotted away. The restoration will include all new wood, paint, mechanical, and returning them to service.

The end of the day. All the wood has been removed revieling the steel center sill. Mother nature had already started on the wood removal project so this stage went fairly quickly.
