    Default Gondola or Bulkhead Flatcar Loads

    To the experts,

    I was wondering if someone has made or can make some of the coiled steel wire loads for gons or bulkhead flats? Sort of like the in the pictures. Thanks!!!

    I'm not aware of a load like this existing in the sim. Would be nice to have.
    BLW has coiled steel wire on reels. But not quite the same thing.

    It would make an interesting load to have.

    I agree, that would be an awesome set of loads.

    I agree with both of you. It gives you another commodity to haul by rail. It got my attention one day down at the Amtrak Station in Spartanburg, SC with a SB NS train with about 10 bulkhead and gondolas loaded with this coiled steel wire. If I'm not mistaken, the Nucor Steel plant in Kingman, AZ ships this material out as well via truck and rail.

    Hi Folks,

    Well - the one in the last picture would be a great first project in SketchUp or something - for someone to try - it is the most poly friendly design and could be nothing more than a textured cylinder...

    Regards,
    Scott

    Regarding flat cars. while not bulkheads, how about some nice looking John Deere tractor loads?

    See Tiger Trains for modern John Deere tractor loads. Good ones!
