In the early 2000s, Besse Forest Products operated a loading spur alongside the former ACR Steelton yard for loading export pulpwood, and their privately owned flatcars could be seen around the Sault Ste. Marie area. This pair represents one such series of flatcars owned by Besse, a 52’6″ car rebuilt with side stakes.
