|The right of way is being cleaned up, now a load of used ties are heading back to the work train on the WRD.
I have an empty Westerfield CN 48'6" gondola looking for a load. Actually I am modeling a work train for my layout and I though maybe I could model a load of new ties going out to a work zone and returning as a load of old ties that have been gathered up.
I think this reversible load idea is working well for me...maybe a few more cars should be added to the fleet. The load only took me an afternoon using extra ties I have on hand...a nice and simple project that really adds to operations and a new look to my work train...George Dutka
|All the items one needs to make a reversible tie load for a gondola. I used a small piece of basswood for the supporting center.
