It would seem that way. But that’s how I found them.

You put them on the layout mixed up like that, admit it.

The yellow flat is for assembled turnouts

After looking at pics on rrpicturearchives.net, I think that yellow flat is to transport the arm/boom of the crane when they move the crane from site to site/long distance.

Are you sure? All of the csxt 9162xx series are crane idler flats, and panel track cars typically have a large A frame rather then horizontal rollers.

Man, you’d think they would’ve kept the jewel case it came in if they were gonna move it though, right?  :trollface:

Got a chuckle out of me on that one.  Guess CSX is one of those that tosses the case once they get something  :D :D
