I like the idea of a quick and dirty flat car load challenge.

Oh good, I finished mine already.

Why not add gondolas to the "loads" challenge? Lots of really funky stuff was shipped in gons, and some gons themselves looked like rolling junkpiles even when empty.  As for flats, would it be any kind of flat? Regular, depressed center, bulkhead ends, TOFC, center beam, long load carried on two flats?

Make up some rules and post Challenge #4.  A freight car/load challenge probably doesn't need to be more than 30 days, though, in my estimation.

I'd be in for a load challenge... some say I'm already full of it... :ashat:
