Being as I'm snowed in it gives ma a chance to work on my woodchip fleet. Thanks to a purchase from Jon (LandNnut) I now have enough flatcars. I just needed to add bulkheads and loads of pulpwood to em'. All the bulkheads are done and I've started on the loads.

Ditto to what Cody said. Mike, what did you use to to make the bulkheads? They look like the ends salvaged from some other flatcars. The SAL box looks good too. Looks like you converted to a low level end brake wheel and body mounted micro trains couplers. What part number couplers did you use? Did you cut the coupler boxes off the Atlas trucks or are those different trucks? Maybe Micro trains? What kind of wheel sets are you using? I worked on my Mainline and Siding kit a little bit today.
Looks like you had fun;

Jon I haven't done anything to the boxcar. On the flatcars I used the floor off some 60' flatcars. Because of that some of the bulkheads have a taper and some don't. The ones that have the taper are the ends off those cars which gave me the option of two ways to install the brake wheel so I did some of both. As best I can remember from when I had some of my property pulpwooded in the early 80's that was true of the real cars. The bulkheads seemed to be made from whatever was on hand. They were in slave service on the Murphy branch, never went farther east then the paper mill or farther west than Murphy. They were VERY rough looking and while most were brownish red some were black as well. I removed all the wheels and trucks and replaced them with Microtrains #1037 (old # now) which is the truck/wheel and coupler assembly. I do this so that all the couplers are automaticaly lined up with each other and it is very quick to do. How about some pics of the kit you are working on?

Mike is your property right next to the Murphy Branch? Was the pulp wood loading area near your house? I have not done anything photogenic yet besides what I already posted here:

All else I have gotten done is to cut some more wall framing pieces.

The pulpwood yard was in town which is about 10 miles from home. The closest trackage is about one mile, you can hear the horn at the one crossing if you are out in the yard.

The last building of any size will be the pallet company. I have been trying different pieces and kits together and seperately and mixed and matched and.........................
Still hadn't come up with anything I liked. Then I bought a Hitzeman Feed Mill by AMB when Walthers had it on sale for $20. I combined it with a steel building I got from Drew and moved the small building from the top roof of the mill to the lower roof and I think I may be getting closer to the orginal building that has been added on to look I'm looking for.

Mike,

I'm once again getting caught up with your latest work. Nice job on both the lumber loads and pulpwood loads. I think that the electrical tape is a good idea for strapping. I'll remember that one.

Are you using any particular kind of twigs for the pulpwood? I've had good luck with both Hemlock and Mountain Laurel branches.

I like your mock-up on the pallet company. A picture mock-up is indeed worth a thousand words or something like that.

Thanks Bruce! The pulpwood is mostly Mountain Laurel, Azalea, Maple, Hemlock, Hickory and Oak.
