Construction Debris
Posted by caldreamer on Tuesday, July 10, 2018 8:47 PM

I read on another forum that wood chip cars are being used to haul construction debris.  Does any member have any ideas on how to model construction debris?

That is a rough one, because the is really no uniformity in the load. You will be looking at carpenter's drops, insulation ends, broken fixtures, cut ceramic tile, wire, pipe and tubing, broken cinder block, plywood cuts, and so on.

I have no idea how to make this look convincing.

CHOOCH! Are you listening... great idea for a new load casting.

Happily modeling the STRATTON & GILLETTE RAILROAD located in a world of plausible nonsense set in August, 1954.

My question be from where to where?

Wood cutoffs could go to a pulp mill, steel bits to a smelting operation, but a mixed load would need to be sorted, unless it was going to landfill.

I do believe that construction debris is sent to a landfill.
