Model Realistic Freight Car Loads
This 112-page "Model Realistic Freight Car Loads", by Keith Kohlmann, gives many prototype examples of freight car loads from common to unique, and from small to large. Follow along with tons of pictures and drawings showing how to realistically secure loads and operate them.
There are hundreds of types of loads, including machinery, heavy equipment, pipe, beams, lumber, boilers, generators, transformers, and many others. The challenge in modeling is making freight car loads more realistic!
This book will guide you in making your models more realistic by following prototype practice in securing loads and operating them. Included are a lot of photos of real loads, drawings showing how real railroads secure them to cars, and several modeled examples with tips on making model loads as realistic as possible. You'll get a variety of types of loads, including:
- Farm machinery and heavy equipment.
- Steel and metal products.
- Buses, trucks, cars, and other vehicle loads.
- Forest products and building materials.
- and much more!
