    I decided to try a different variation of the technique I described in the "Removable Coal Load" thread...
    This time, I cut a piece of foam to fit the bottom of one of my 40' gons...I painted it a dark brown, & then glued on some bits & pieces from the scrap box

    Hey Tyson,
    We've got several of those Eoads down here in Olive Branch.:eek:
    Are you for sure there's not one hidin' behind the pallet factory??
    Take a close look....:p
    Nice work, Charlie, can't hardly tell it from the real thing!!!
    :D :D

    "Saw one down in the Bayou once... Critter made a sound you wouldn't want ta' hear twice in a lifetime, I tell ya'...":eek:

    Hey Charlie, all "cheap shots" aside, these are great. I find myself collecting little scraps out of my "junk bins" at work so I can add them to a load. A lot of little pieces from electronic devices look like prototypical "junk" when you paint them. I never thought to make them removable. I like this idea a lot! Thanks for the idea...;)

    Hehe, I too have never ever seen an Eoad and I'm from Canada, and I'm quite sure if there is such a thing, you would find it here, nor do I even know what one is, but I do know a good looking piece of rolling stock when I see it, and damn that is FINE. That is probably the best looking pile of "junk" I have ever seen, even looks prototype...LOL...anyways, great looking piece of equipment
    looks right at home near that scrap yard. Nice job

    Ya' know... To poke "fun" at myself...
    I can never get the "haphazard" look of a pile of scrap.
    Charlie, do you just stick things on until they look right or is there a system to it? Every time I do something like this, it looks like a bad attempt at sculpture rather than a pile of junk, like it should look... It drives me nuts...

    Vic, I had Eoads in my lawn and I found a way to get rid of them. My wifes uncle, a Filipino witch doctor gave me the secret. You have to do this on a full moon. You need:

    1. An Egak tail feather (which if you have a pet Egak, you'll know the tail feathers are on his front side)

    2. 7 gecko tails

    3. A bucket of Chammelhoffs.

    Place the Egak tail feather on your head. Place one gecko tail in four seperate pockets, two must be on your left side, and two on your right. Very important detail. If you goof the tails, the Eoads could change into smepplehops, which you know you don't want. Just before midnight, throw the remaining tails over you left shoulder. At excatly midnight, dump out the Chammelhoffs and yell UNGOY ANA MO EOADS. The Eoads will be gone by sunrise. Then e-mail me and I will quote you a price for the recipie to get rid of the Chammelhoffs! :D :D :D

    Boy, thank God I don't have these things. Due to the cat, every gecko within "catchin'" distance HAS no tail...:D :p

    You know, in a quasi related theme, the Atlas Forum don't allow this kind of talk. They don't know what they are missing (he, he)...:D

    That's a sure sign they have a bad case of
    Chammelhoffs. The Chammelhoffs have eaten the tenderest, tastiest part of their brain: the sense of humor.

    And Vic,the best way to keep the Chammelhoffs out of the house is ozone. Yes, that wonderful smell, produced by arcin' and sparkin' DC motors, and the very best ozone, the best for chasin' away those pesky Chammelhoffs, my friend, can only be produced by a model railroad! How's that for an excuse!?!?! Just tell you wife if ya don't keep those trains runnin', the Chammelhoffs'll eat yer brains out. I'm sure she'll understand:D :D :D
