Does Anyone Make N Scale Bulkheads for Flatcars?

I need some N scale bulkheads for some logging flats I'm building. I thought Micro Engineering made them, but I checked their website and didn't see any. I know I bought bulkheads before Katrina flooded me out and I lost them. Does anyone know who might make them?


Hmm... good thing you
checked a manufacturer
first...



Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

I think Traincat did, but guessing they went away with the freight cars.

Precision Masters used to.  They may still be available or check eBay.

I think that's the bulkheads I had! Thanks. I just tried Red Caboose, but their website says they don't sell parts any more. Looks like I'll have to give eBay a try.


Hmm... there's always the
scratchbuilding option...
ha ha... ha ha ha ha ha...
wah ha ha ha haaaaa...

Actually, the old Red Caboose bulkheads wouldn't be hard to duplicate in styrene.  And, if you're building freelance log flats, you can design your own.  As long as it's structurally sound, there's probably a prototype somewhere.  Even if it ISN'T sound, there might be a prototype!  Loggers tended to be inventive...
