Re: Photo: Scrap Loads In Gondolas (1955)

One of the very last things I did before retiring from EMD was to wander out back in the yard with a coffee can and scoop up some machining turnings or chips, as they were called, for my scrap loads. They were pre-weathered with rust and I use them as loose loads in my gons. Repeated pouring and dumping them out of the gons also has the benefit nicely weathering the gon interiors.

Absolutely. There were many grades of scrap, and value depended on grade. Particularly post-production scrap was easy to segregate and many loads depict that. (Not the modeler's favorite load with a complete automobile on top.)
