Bill;

You are welcome. Mantua/Tyco has also used this car as a hauler for preformed concrete pipe sections, but the model is based on a prototype that was designed for early rolled steel coils. I forget which RR it was, but it was a mid Atlantic region RR that took older 36, and 40 foot flats, and converted them to haul rolled steel coils.

I got some 1/32 lead sheet from Rotometals.com if you're looking for a source.

Thanks again, Horse. I missed your first two comments about leaving the bent brake staff as is and, now having seen several prototype photos like that, I agree and am leaving it alone. Thanks.
Also thanks for the info on sheet lead for weights. I have a medium sized piece of lead flashing a contractor friend salvaged and gave me and your technique sounds like a good way to prepare and attach it.

Thanks, Dave, always good o have sources for supplies.

Bill;

Pretty far down the project roster, but if I do ever get to it, I will.

Thanks

Horse, I know what you mean. This thread has several projects that will get updated or become new posts, but none are progressing at present.
