SP&S 23526 40' gondola with scrap load, a Sunshine car by the late Tim Dickinson (my photo).

Very nice. Thanks for sharing. We definitely need more gondola models with variety, as they outnumbered other types of cars at one time.

Very nicely done car. Beat up, but not "overdone".

GUYS...There are a large number of flkat and gons loaded in past years like today, but every layout big,shelf or small youcan always a load on flats or gons....This is a good example of what can do...

It's pretty much the perfect model. Highly detailed but like the prototype nothing flashy about it.

If I recall correctly, this type of load was made by taking small wads of aluminum foil and crushing them into cubes with standard household toolbox pliers.

Easy and effective. Add a little weathering, and you have a nice gondola load.

Car looks good, trackwork looks great.
