Reply to "Does anyone on the forum make custom coal loads ? "New Info""

After making the 7 loads using the plywood they did seem a little heavy and added drag.  I was able to find a 2'X2' piece of foam at Lowes for about $6.  So I decided to start over. ( after all I have a 50 lb. bag of coal) .  What I'm showing here is the difference in the weight using the plywood  vs  Foam.

This is the plywood base.

This is the foam base, over 1/2 lb. difference in just 7 cars.

I'm having so much fun making these I've filled 13 hoppers and 6 gondolas.
