Re: Weighing Freight Car Models with Liquid Gravity

 Unfortunately it’s highly magnetic. It seems it’s ground cast iron or steel. As with all magnetcic materials that’s detrimental to the use of magnetic couplers like Kadee.

The large undertie Kadee magnets will "pull” such a weighted car from a couple inches away causing unwanted uncouplings.

Where the magnetic property is not important it’s a useful product.

I found a product called Liquid Gravity from Deluxe Materials from the UK the other day in a catalog a friend gave me. Although it is apparently not new has anyone every used it to weight flat cars or gondolas. It appears to be very small pellets of non toxic material that is pour able and fixed in place with CA glue. Looks to be available on Amazon as well
Below is a link to the product and a video on its use.
