Yes, but instead of toilet paper, I've used tissues paper, paint does make
it rigid.

Subject: [STMFC] Gondola loads

I've been thinking of a load I can put in my new Tangent gon. one that would
terminate on my layout. I have Central Valley through truss bridge members I
can use.

But, I'd like to try a covered load. I was thinking of a styrene base (so
the car can be emptied) with several "tent poles" for lack of a better term
glued upright. I would cover these with a single ply of toilet tissue. Then
paint a proper color hoping the paint will make the tissue more rigid.
Anyone ever try this?
