Subject: [DRGW] [SG] 54' TOFC

Sorry if this seems obvious, but I can't access any of my resources on this topic at present... Question is about the single-trailer flat cars such as the DRGW used on the Railblazer. I'm not referring to the Front Runners. Does anyone have a number range on these? Walthers and others make models of cars in this class, and I'm checking to see how accurate they are.

Basically, I have Front runners on my layout, but their reliability is disappointing. Keeping lightweight 4-wheel cars on the rail has proven problematic, no matter how much I weight them. I'm looking to replace them with conventional flats, as seen in this photo:

(Trust me. Sorry they are so small in the photo, but there are several on that train.)
