Sounds a bit like the old Lionel stuff . The stuff will not be properly blocked or tied down , just plunked down .

And atleast Lionel attempted to use a forklift... This looks like a Magic Carpet loader.

I saw the ad in MR and had no idea what it was, looked like the photo was cut off. Now I see it's like a big bulldozer.

When I first saw this, my first reaction was really "wtf? - Lionel in HO?"

But now I've realized thins thing will probably do REALLY well.

I'm pretty sure that I am going to bring it up. The new layout has several places where enclosed warehouses load flats, so this should work well for me.

Yes, depending on the load and with a little modifcation to the relative track level, it will load gons. It's a little trickier, though, as it requires percise spotting to load gons.

And although the Industrial Flat Car Loader is designed for HO, it can be used in N -- in fact it could load mulitple cars at once.

Hope this helps.
