American Freedom Train
Flat Cars #30, 31 & 32

These cars carried the concessions, ticket, and storage wagons that were needed at every stop. Also carried were a 1975 Chevrolet step van (Audio/Visual Van), forklift (Clark IT-40, Type G, 1972), 1975 Chevy Blazer and a 1968 GMC 'Custom' utility truck (engine crew truck) -- all painted in AFT colors -- along with the occasional POV (personally owned vehicle).

Shown at Pittsburgh, PA July 1976.

Current dispositions unknown. Some 2400 of these Trailer Train flats (TTX F85C) were built.

One theory is these three became the flats (#220, 221, 222) on the Ringling Bros. Gold Train (the Monte Carlo Circus Festival Spectactular) in 1979. If so, these flats would be former North American Car Corp NIFX 8284, 8283 & 8287. The Gold Train lasted only one year and the last two flats were absorbed into the Blue Train thereafter.

Please email if you have any additional information.
