    Model Railroader did an article from a guy that modeled construction and military loads on flat cars..
    I think the issue was last summer, or earlier.
  3. There was a series in the NMRA magazine - open loads - also had info on this

    The open loads series is available from the NMRA in book form on the NMRA web site.

    There is an older AAR book, that shows how equipment is to be chocked and chained to flat cars, that appears on EBAY from time to time. I got mine that way a couple of years ago.

    For reference there are about 50 shots of loaded equiment on flat cars on my web site.

    Do you happen to know wht the name of the AAR book is? I liked the shots on your website. Theres a couple shots of exactly what i'm trying to do.

    Thanks everyone for their inputs.
