The 'Queen Mary', officially known as the Pennsylvania FD-2 class flat car, is a truly unique piece of equipment. There was only one and it is currently on display in Altoona, Pennsylvania where it was originally built. Created by the Altoona Car Shops using all welded steel construction in 1952, the FD-2 was capable of handling 500,000 pound loads which typically consisted of Westinghouse turbo-generators. When built, it was the largest piece of rolling stock in the world and when loaded to capacity, it weighed approximately 1,000,000 pounds and required special orders for all movements. Later in the decade, United Engineering & Foundry Company built a special carbody for use with the truck assemblies from the FD-2 to be used for shipping a rolling mill housing that weighed more than 442,000 pounds. The carbody was later purchased by the 'Pennsy' and used interchangeably with the drop-center carbody for a variety of shipments until the car was retired. The FD-2  routinely traveled off-system and remained in service through the Penn Central and Conrail years of operation.
