The Cape Ann has two section work cars in MoW service. Each is assigned to one end of the layout. These are used for day-to-day routine work that does not require a full work train. This Tyco 50' flatcar has a caboose body to provide a place to ride and shelter, and the 20’ intermodal container provides secure storage for tools and supplies. They do require special handling - the locomotive must always couple to the caboose end, so there is unrestricted access to the doors of the container. Like all non-revenue equipment, it carries a 9XX road number.
