Illinois Central Gulf 38' Pulpwood Flatcars 1972+

The ICG inherited over 1200 38' Pulpwood Rack cars as a result of the IC and GM&O merger. These cars, assembled by GM&O and IC shops forces, utilized nearly indestructible General Steel cast frames. Assembled between 1950 and 1963, these racks were the backbone for the movement of pulpwood on the GM&O.

As the 1970s progressed, newer 50' Pulpwood racks were assembled at Centralia to augment the roster. Into the mid-1980s, many of the 38' racks were removed form service. Some were scrapped, while others were reassigned to M.O.W service as track panel cars. Many of these track panel cars continue in service today.
