    A few different loads on flat cars.
    The log car is heavely weathered, the flat car and bulkhead flat are new out the box.
    Love N-scale.

    Paul, What a great picture to show the contrast between weathered and unweathered! Good looking loads also.

    Thanks for the nice comments.
    Jon the logs are made of buxus, it is surrounding my garden and I have to cut it once or twice a year, so have plenty of it.

    They look great, Paul, I have 100 + feet of variouse hedges and I only WISH I could cut them just once a year! It's every two weeks. :D :D :D That's what I use for my trees... so far. :p

    Jon,

    Maybe you can your "little plastic people" do the cutting every two weeks.
    Of course they need a ladder.;) ;) ;)

    Paul,
    I think Jon would be in serious trouble if they ever got to the "top of the ladder":D :D :D :D :D

    Never happen, Pete, I'd just melt the ladder out from under them!

    Great imagination and laughs everyone. Paul, thanks for posting these three different loads. I was wondering what I could use now you have provided the ideas.
    Thanks

    Yes, thanks for the pics, I think using wood for wood is always best if you can, and if you can use bark for the bark, that's one up! I think the biggest risk besides bringing a bug in to the house is they may change over time. But what the heck, they're free :) For my tree's I've been using pivot hedge, because it has bark when it is 1/8" diameter or smaller, and some barberry or something. When I get into giant oaks, I'll just have to get some oak branches at Mom and Dad place :)
