Lionel PW 345 Culvert Unloader - Plastic Culvert Question

I recently found a 6342 car to use with my 345 Culvert Unloader and 342 Culvert Loader PW accessories.  The car came with plastic culverts.  Were these originally made by Lionel?  How were they supposed to work with the 345 Unloader since it uses a magnet to pick up the culverts?

Just curious.  Am I missing something?

Thanks

Original Post

These plastic culverts are the same length, same diameter, and same wall thickness as the metal culverts.  They do not have a seam.  If they were not made by Lionel, someone went to a lot of work to make them and they still do not work with the 345 culvert unloader.

Could they have been made for the 342 only or for a later model culvert accessory?  KOOLJOCK1, I am not disagreeing with you.  It just seems like a lot of work to make something that doesn't work with this accessory.

Thanks

Could they have been made as a load for the flat car with the ramp ?
