I just finished this pipe load for my Menards scale flat car.  It hides the truck mounts very well.

 

The pipe is some scrap 1/2" alumnium tubing painted flat black.  The stakes are 1/8" basswood.  The straps are 24 gauge copper wire.

 

I also made some loads for a few of my gondolas.  Should make a neat looking train when finished.

The black plastic coffee stirers, the ones that look like thin straws from Mc Donald"s), make good pipes too. You can heat them slightly, and flare one end to represent ductile iron water pipe.

Your load looks very nice!
