Re: Creation of removable false-bottomed coal/gravel loads.


With pulling many cars, you may need extra weight to hold the front of the tender down.
Fill the coal space with pennies to the ounces needed and top off with the base materials
used previously then the a topping of the preferred commodity. I place shrink wrap in the
space and glue the pennies together to create the height needed, but for gondolas, pillars
of glued pennies work as corner supports and to bring them up to weight.  Like most of us,
it will be a good reason to use all the pennies that seem to be in containers everywhere in
the home.
