Now you just need to make a few bundles for the finger rack cars.
That sounds like a neat idea, ill have to try it out :mrgreen:
They sure do make reusable concrete forms outta' steel - just look at Trucklover's original post, 2nd pic

Those are going to be my favorite pieces of rolling stock :mrgreen: :thumb: :mrgreen:
I know it works in 1/72 scale as well - some of our modelling guys worked that scale exclusively.
You guys amaze me sometimes --- can't get piano --music wire smaller than .015 !!
Take a trip to a Music store & look at guitar strings --- I make all my hand rails out of them -- they come as small as .004 , which is the size I used for the braces for the saftey cage ? on the pilot deck of an Allagheny. For hand rails they are much less prone to damage even in .006 or.007 than brass ever can be . They are cheap too, a buck or two for 2 -3 feet . Then look at the wound strings , they make fantastic armoured glad hand air lines or lagged pipe.
I've been using them for years .
Yor are correct about cutting them Dr . wayne --A dremel is the best way, however they won't rust .
For the Plywood get some Edge banding from a cabinet shop , its very thin & is real wood.
