vehicle loads
Posted by socalpackerguy on Thursday, December 06, 2018 10:10 PM

Just wanted to get some ideas on what scale vehicles you guys think are the most appropriate.  G is, of course 1/22 but are any other scale vehicles attractive in your experience.  Am particularly interested  in adding constructiion vehicles to my flatcars.  Any input, as always, is appreciated.

Personally I think anything in between 1:32 and 1:20 works unless you are a stickler, remember the train is moving and it's 10' away, LOL a neat load I had for a while wasn't a vehicle but used electrician's flexible "blue smurf" a ridged 1/2" or 3/4"  ridged conduit painted silver, looked like culvert pipe.

I guess if you want to go down the road and buy loads USA Trains have generator sets that could be used
