I checked the messages archives and this question has never been answered:|
Where did the CB&Q run its Flexi-Van service?
Close to that is: Where were the CB&Q Flexi-Van terminals? Since specialized equipment (bogies and yard tractors) was needed to load and unload Flexi-Vans, I would think the actual Flexi-Van terminals would be clearly identified somewhere.
There is photo evidence of Flexi-Vans on certain passenger trains, including the recent one I posted that shows one on the Black Hawk. But the lack of photos still makes it hard for me to understand what the actual Flexi-Van routes were. I know the Black Hawk was scheduled for night service, so there aren't nearly as many photos of it as the Zephyrs, but I would think there might be some documentation about regular Flexi-Van service on this or other Q trains somewhere.
Any help would be appreciated. Or perhaps we have something in the BRHS archives?
