So an update on the ore car adapter.
I got out of my own way and decided to do a one-size-fits-all solution.
I just ordered these and if they work, that should complete all the testing I need to do before opening them up for sale.  The only issue is that the drawbars are in a test material (HP fusion) because FXD would be too brittle.  I assume the HP material will be live at some point soon.

Jason, are these your work? And, are they available on shapeways or elsewhere.
I just found this post today. I did not know that anyone had made these available.
Thanks

Yeah, they're up on my Shapeways site.

This should get you there.

I just got pockets for Atlas ore cars, they look pretty good to me. I'm waiting for couplers to arrive. I thought I had some...

Randy

Long shank, yes?  Are you going to use stock couplers or cut and weld?

Yes, I have long shank coming. I'll probably cut and weld them.
