I don't claim to have the perfect N scale lumber load, however, my quest to find a suitable load for my empty centerbeam flatcars, some shortcomings of existing lumber loads on the market, and my constant interest to find new N scale projects led me to create my own version.
My lumber loads feature:
- Accurate designs based on actual prototype lumber load wraps. Take a close look at existing N scale models, as some use a generic logo perhaps from the company website, but are missing other key markings. For some modelers this may be suitable, but I prefer to produce as accurate of a model as possible.
- Simulated tie down cables that are accurately spaced to match the centerbeam flatcar. This feature is often missing on other N scale lumber load alternatives.
- I use a precision cut oak block which adds approximately 1 ounce of weight to the feather light Red Caboose centerbeam car.
I will begin adding lumber loads to Ebay periodically, so please check them out if interested. My Ebay user ID is jal76.
In addition, here is a quick video I made that features some of my lumber loads.
