How would you go about cutting perfect circles from sheet styrene to model
that load? I'm thinking .020 sheet looks about right for those.

The linked photo sure does look like an F29. The sill steps, grab irons, poling pockets, and polling pocket rivets all match up.


About the only difference between the attached photo and the linked photo is the cut lever. Carmer on the attached photo and bottom operated on the linked photo.

Does this flat car look like the PRR F29, also attached? (Granted, different trucks; the second order of F29 got Commonwealths).


Do those sheets look like tank or boiler heads?  Interesting loading technique!
