This is the kind of load MT should do.

They did something similar in the Milwaukee Road runner pack:

Sorry for the small photo but this was the best I could find. I remember them calling this a paper load, but it doesn't appear on the MT website at present.
It doesn't look like it would be much a a challenge to roll your own, and it would likely look better than a resin casting.

Best wishes, Dave

If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Someone's gonna have to pay for that load being ruined.

The thing about loads in boxcars is they _should_ only ever be seen during loading/unloading at the dock.

Vandals perhaps?

Intresting that the car isn't cushioned, arent paper cars usually cushioned?
Vincent

If N scale had good SD40-2s, C30-7s, U30Cs, SD45s, SD40s, and SW10s; I'd be in N scale.

No, not necessarily.
No farms, no food.

Support your local farmer's market!

Looks like the "dink" rolls we use. Our dink are 11" wide. (one page)
