About New Haven Railroad Class FM TOFC by Matt Csenge

The New Haven Railroad was an early adopter of trailer on flatcar (TOFC) service, beginning operation on December 15, 1937. Original terminals were in Boston, Providence, and the Bronx, NYC.

The FM class of cars were 53'-6" in length, and were modified in-house from cars built by Greenville Steel Car in 1944.

For the two trailers I opted for New England Transportation Co. (NET Co.) and Associated Transport. NET Co. was a wholly-owned subsidiary of the New Haven Railroad, providing road transportation with trucks and buses, so this was an obvious choice! Associated Transport was the largest trucking company in the country from 1943-1976, so this was also an obvious choice.
