Remarks & Notes 
The always versatile 89’4” flatcar can carry pretty much anything with only a few slight modifications. Whether it’s a Boeing 737 fuselage, large diameter steel pipe or even tanks for the Military the flat car can handle it with ease. But sometimes more than one is needed for very long loads as is the case for the transport of wind turbine blades seen here. These massive and extremely long loads require the use of two 89’4” flat cars to safely carry one wind blade as they continue their journey through Colorado and onto Texas.
