Re: Boiler Load On Flat Car

Look at Resin Car Works web site at the pictures of the Kewanee boilers on flat cars for inspiration.

Just got my Birchfield boilers from Multiscale Digital and they look great.

I have attached to photos of three boilers staged on a flatcar to simulate the load shown in the Birchfield Boiler photo that started this thread.  I used two HO and one N scale boiler and I think that they will look great.  And yes, the height of the car with the tallest boiler is within the NMRA standards with a little room to spare.

Now, can someone suggest materials and methods for tie downs?
