I hope I am able to transfer this picture.

I completed the flat car a while back but it's the only flat car picture I have loaded on Imgur.

I'm sure it has flaws, Note the crane was loaded out of a crushed rock lot.

Have fun.

I hope everyone agrees we should include this rule : "If a Show Me contributer does not make a new request, the previous request is still in effect." 

Flat cars ... 

 

Please show an open load on a flat car, a gondola,  an open top hopper, or an ore car. .

Suspension of disbelieve is a term that means the audience believes that fiction is real but in general anything that is not average ruins the façade so I don’t really have anything too strange but a do have some Thrall All Door cars which are used to haul lumber. They are kind of strange compared to a normal boxcar.

Please show me some other unusual rolling stock.

Unusual rolling stock ..

A heater car (steam generator car) was used to provide steam to heat pasenger cars when a train was hauled with a locomotive that did not have a supply of steam. This Rapido model has simulated steam. 

Please show some stripes.

Thanks for sharing pictures Jimmy. I currently do not have a layout either.

.

Here is a well used Caspar & Silver Creek Gondola. I love the way the interior wood turned out in this model.

Show me another worn and used gondola car.

I love the way the interior wood turned out in this model.

You definatly "earned" the right to brag about that one. I always "try" ( and usually fail ) to get wood to look that good ! That's an InterMountain Drop bottom Gondola isn't it ? I managed to get several of those at a yard sale 9 or 10 years ago..... still havent gotten around to building them.

The Demon's Hollow Spend's as little money as possable on rolling stock, and their work car's are no exception.Here's a 1 / 2 Gon water tender.

Lets see more Well Used Gondolas .

Calling this a "load" is , I admit, kind of reaching out there but ...

Here's a Eastern Car Work's depressed center flat. Heavily modified to "actually" roll on track's. ( The kit straight from the box leaves a LOT to be desired )

If this is acceptable, lets see some Caboose's.

Rust...... It's a good thing !
