Who owns this bulkhead. the load is what I always see these hauling. The cars I see are all relatively clean and new ish. From my angle, I can't get a reporting mark. Interesting color and design. to model.

Good question. I just scanned the major companies and they do not look like current production from National Steel, Trinity, Gunderson, nor Greenbrier. I can't find that ACF or Pullman even make bulkhead flats. I even tried AI searches (totally worthless).

Where is this photo taken. Is that kudzu I see on the trees?

Interesting none of the makers show anything about that car. I have seen three now.

I still don't know the owner, but the builder might be Ebenezer Railcar Services. I found pictures of a car on another rail line that has the angled off edges on the bulkhead, and the same main center beam support structure. It is longer and what it doesn't have is the "wings", but I could easily guess that is an optional feature. It is the closest I've been able to find so far.
