    Here are a few pictures of a couple of loads I made up. This first is a coal load made from a chunk of blue foam, black craft paint, and aquarium gravel.

    Carve the foam to fit. Paint liberally with black craft paint from the dollar store. Sprinkle on black aquarium gravel (also from the dollar store) while the paint is still wet. Let dry.

    That's it.

    Flat car load

    This is a flat car load of scale 6"x6"x18' timbers. They are actually craft sticks (about 1000 for $3). Slightly smaller and longer than matches, and "finished" better too.

    Picture was taken at "sunset" ;)

    All models are HO scale.

    I believe that "E"oads got their start as a Jon-monon typo. ;)

    If not, maybe someone will supply the correct story...

    The typo part is right Andrew, but I'm pretty sure it was Charlie's. Still can't figure it out though because the L and the E are not close together on the keyboard. :confused: :eek: :D

    Ahhhhhmmmmmm just what did we smoke out in that parking lot??? :D :D :D

    My bigest typo problem is my right hand constanly tries to outrun the left. 99% of my "the"s come out "hte" and I get sick of editing them and just leave 'em broke. Write slopy and ya can't tell I can't spell :)
