    There's a thread with a similar title on MRF. The point of this thread is to share with everyone here what loads you put in your rolling stock. If you can, include pics. I'll start
    One open wagon, loaded with unshaped stone. This load is, in fact, real rocks.

    Excellent stuff, guys. Train Nut, I didn't post a pic. I started this at school, and at home I have to share the only computer I'm allowed to put files on with my brothers.:curse:

    Gern factory: Flux, fuel, and food

    Here are some views of the Gern factory in Perth.
    The middle car has bagged flux being shipped out. Another car contains processed coal coming in to run the factory while the green one is full of freshly mined haggis for the workers' lunch. (Car is from Wat & Sons Haggis Mine).



    Really? The bags are cast mailbags. The other loads are Jelly Bellies, carefully selected in 3 shades of brown and one shade of black. I've changed flavours due to sensitivity about peanuts -- I offer a taste of haggis to the visitors.

    Another cool idea for a "Lets see your..." thread.


    Walthers 63' Centerbeam with GP plywood (removable)load.
    Next two:Athearn 50' flats with "threaded rod" loads.(Actually, 1:1 8-32 screws with the heads sheared off[Came off my threading machine])

    Athearn(MDC) 50'flat with Wally-World Norscot cheapie.
    Athearn gondola with scrap load.(Came with the load. Can be removed)
