The "flat" car is "depressed" in the middle vs being a true flat car. B)

 

Hey what axle arrangement would that be?

I think it would be 4-4-4-4 whyte. In aar would be 2-2-2-2.... Letters in AAR are for powered axles, and they keep them arranged by truck/bogie, whyte has no indicator on which wheels are powered and add up the wheels on each truck/bogie. Whyte is more for steam locomotives, where as AAR can be used for any type, and is more accurate and holds more information.

 

For example, the GG1 in AAR would be 2-C-C-2. C being 3 powered axles in a row. In whyte it would be 4-6-6-4.
