Pipe Loads

Made some good progress today.  Labored on Labor Day.

I finished getting the cars staged and tabbed.
I got all the extra cars moved off the layout.
I re-typed some of the Train Instruction sheets and added the new industries.
Removed some of the passenger cars from the two Mail trains and added a few extra TOFC's.

Then I started making a few pipe loads for the flat cars that will serve Ozark Irrigation.

A few years ago I picked up a slug styrene round and square tubing from a seller on eBay called kdarr70.  He sells a lot of different types of styrene in bulk a lot cheaper than you can buy it from Evergreen or Plastruct.


  1. Sounds like a pipe dream to me. Get it? Pipe. Pipe dream. OK it wasn't that good.

  2. Now I know why I and all of my mates stayed with car cards. We used to spend hours and hours getting ready for an ops session. Going to car cards saved us many many hours.
    Have fun.
