The Ramp Wagon
Ramp Wagon for storage of the entrance and exit ramps, the flag plaza and other bulky items. May also have been used to store the long lengths of hoses needed to supply water from fire hydrants to the last five cars on the train.
Usually positioned right behind the Chevy Blazer to be the first wagon unloaded from the flats. Plain white sides. Large AFT emblem on each end. No doors or windows on either long side. Two container-style doors on the rear. Front end was one big door that swung down to form a ramp.
After one of the electricians devised some marquee lights to adorn the canopy over the AFT entrance door, a long thin column-like traveling container was fashioned for the lights and attached to the top of this wagon, running just about the entire length of the wagon. Two telescoping light towers mounted. 19'Lx9'Wx12'H.
