Re: What methods do you use to add weight to an empty flatcar?

I’ve been using it for years along with tungsten disks to weight pilot trucks when needed.  I’ve ordered from Maximum Velocity:  https://www.maximum-velocity.com/product/tungsten-putty-1-ounce/

 

But an internet search shows it is available for many sources including Amazon.

On Cody's Office this week (Kalmbach, Model Railroader), Cody Grivno showed Woodland Scenic's tungsten putty, which is a moldable tungsten "clay"-like product that you can cram into spaces like center sills and underbodies. I was not aware of this product until then.
