    I'm putting loads on four of the new Walthers Depressed Center Flatcars for a friend, and any advice or plans on what type of loads that could be used or scratchbuilt would be appreciated.

    The Armature from a R/C car motor is what i'm planning for a load in N-scale. It'd approximate the size of a power station Generator Armature/Stator, approx 10-12 scale feet diameter. :thumb:

    Anything big and heavy. The depressed centers were made for tall items for clearance reasons. I have seen wrecked locos hauled on them with the trucks off and the loco blocked up with ties. Power station transformers, turbines, large engines, boats... FRED
