Re: Creation of removable false-bottomed coal/gravel loads.
Hi Denny,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I always make my own loads. I typically use styrofoam meat trays or carryout boxes, painted black or load color.
I cut the foam to wedge in the space tightly, about 1/8 " below the edge of the car, and use plastic teaspoon to dump the material in a realistic pile. I spray with a fine mist of rubbing alcohol then saturate with matte medium. Let it dry over night.
These can be removed by soaking overnight in ammonia.

How have listers commonly gone about creating their own coal/gravel/crushed rock, etc. loads without filling the entire car with a fortune of model commodity materials, or creating a weight sink hard to actually be pulled down the rails? Removable is far to be preferred.
