Re: Car weighting

I have operated my lighter models on a couple different club layouts with various grades and train lengths up to 30-35 cars without an issue. My freight cars have been mixed in with others weighing closer to the NMRA recommendations.

That’s fine, Eric, but what happens when you take your equipment to another layout?  I don’t even HAVE a home layout (yet) but I’m a member of a major club, the North Shore Model Railroad Club ( ) and one of the major issues that arise in ops there are cars that are either under or (far) over weight standards.  OK, fine, the weight recommendations in the RP.  Whatever, as I said before, it is a (de facto) standard.
