    Howdy folks

    The last days, I've built the first pipe load for my bulkhead flatcars. I use 3/16" I-beam Evergreen profiles and NORTEASTERN SCALE LUMBER 3×3" pieces. The straps are thin strips of insulating tape.

    For variety try an aluminum foil culvert load. Just wrap heavy duty foil around an appropriately sized bolt and use your fingernail to form the foil to the threads.

    Or those "bendy" straws-just cut the bendable part out, and paint it silver.(y)
