Al Broadbent

(Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA)

The car illustrated below has the number 311 etched into the bottom, along with Al Broadbent, Phila. Broadbents was a hobby shop which manufactured some 0 scale cars, and presumably this is one of them.

The car itself is a model of an unusual 52ft depressed centre flat car, much longer than most similar cars which were usually 44ft or thereabouts. No trucks or fittings. The body is a solid one piece casting, and would require two six wheeled trucks.
