Columbus Trainmaster lumber loads
Author: rschonfelder

I am wondering if anyone has bought these loads or is familiar with them? I was looking at them on PWRS site and they do not seem to be the same as the old Jaeger loads where you do a cut and wrap on a bit of wood. These seem to be one big load with the space between the bundles being reflected by a black line. Is this correct?

Who else does lumber loads?

Yes, it is one slab of wood with colored logo paper over it. Not bad looking at a distance. Certainly better than Walthers plastic loads

I have many of these loads in N scale and they are very good for the scale and price. Not sure the
process would work in HO, and since they're really the only N scale product out there, I like them a lot.

Yup--I got some--they're pretty decent for what they are.
Colored paper on a solid narrow block of wood...so it'd definitely designed more for a centerbeam flatcar than, say, an open flat...work out just fine on my Walthers opera window centerbeams.

I've cut them down for a 60 foot Bulkhead flat
