Re: Reading USRA Gondola Load



The Reading served Fort Letterkenny outside Chambersburg, PA via its connection with the WM. Ft L was and is the principle location for rebuilding armor. For a different load, you could send a load of new tracks for armor or old tracks going for scrap or any component needed to rebuild armor.

Myresearch on Reading, PA disclosed that the city is or was known foranthracite coal and for pretzels. I don't like the idea of a coal load,and while I am confident I could fashion HO scale pretzels from thinwire, I don't think a load of pretzels would be very realistic. So I amasking the collective brain of this list for suggestions on what to loadin this car. Anyone?Richard TownsendLincoln City, Oregon
