A gondola, not loaded, but not empty, either...

Luckily it's coupled to a loaded hopper.

Show me more loaded cars, please.

I found this boxcar at the Dunnville team track, but nobody was around for me to ask if the car is half-full or half-empty...

More loaded trains or cars, please.

Lets see more freight/scrap loads.

.

This is one of my favorite loads. It is just a stock Chooch load of large industrial tires that I repainted. I really like the way it turned out. The gondola is a Roundhouse model that was reworked with grab irons, new stirrups, and Kadee trucks (of course).

.

  

.

Show me another load in an open car.

Wayne,

I admire your choice of using the "red lead" primer color on those fabrications. Many folks these days forget that red lead was the original corrosion inhibitor.

Thanks for your comment, Ed.  

It's my opinion that the to-do involving lead was, in some cases, overblown - how many kids are going to be gnawing on a real overhead crane?

I'm modelling the late '30s, when lead paint was used almost everywhere.  Wink
While I don't use lead paint, I do use lead to add weight to my locomotives and rolling stock, and a little common sense in handling it makes its use safe.

Show me more open loads, please. Wayne

From the large to the small. A pair of HOn30 SRRL flats. One with a crate load and the other with a tractor and a seed drill. The seed drill was too wide for the car and had to be partially dismantled.

More open car loads

NYC Hudson #5335 is proceeding west bound into the General Industries curve with a heavyweight passenger train after a stop for passenger, mail and express freight at Black River Station.

Show me another passenger train.

More Passenger Trains Please!

Rule 1: This is my railroad.

Rule 2: I make the rules.

Rule 3: Illuminating discussion of prototype history, equipment and operating practices is always welcome, but in the event of visitor-perceived anacronisms, detail descrepancies or operating errors, consult RULE 1!
