More interesting or offbeat roadnames on rolling stock.

I don't know if it could be considered as interesting, but the lettering was a combination of respect for Six Nations (which are not too far from here) and also a reference to the beginning of WWII, as my layout is set in the late '30s...

Wayne

I have several more made-up roadnames, but I'll leave it to someone else to offer something more interesting.

Show me another loaded flat car. -Kevin

Here's a flatcar with a load of sheet steel...

...and note how the longer sheets are held down, so that the shorter ones won't be allowed to move...

The model is based on a real car, at the steel plant where I worked, which was loaded with sheet steel that was restrained from sliding in-transit.

Show us another loaded flatcar, please.

It's hard to see, but both sides of the windshield are open. I had to "hack" two trucks apart to do it.

More open  anything please.
