I dunno Charley ...

... havin' said that ...

... even the Medievel Mogollon has modernised, with hi-cap. 100% steel ore-cars !

Alwin, I have no ideas on the car, am not up on HO as much as some.

Someone must have made something like it sometime.

Cheers

Si.

Anyone else got any idea ??

Si , Alwin , Woodrow , fellers..

I don't think the truss side hopper cars are common in model form..seems some years ago there was a car like this { sort of..} on the market.

Charley, Si (and everyone else)

More pics of the prototype are very welcome too.

Probably I gonna do a kitbash for the orecars anyway. I've got already a kit of Tichy train group but those cars are to high (they doesn't fit under the shute of the orebin, my mistake).

Yep, 100% steel ore cars...and they are welded, no pesky rivets for counters to deal with.

Charley, I'm watching...don't know what I'm watching but I'm watching anyway...

I wonder why you can't post photos...is there an imbalance in the force or some unknown electrical interference out there in the desert? Maybe Area 51 is thwarting your efforts or have aliens moved in next door? Gotta watch them illegal aliens what with all their high tech devices and those 8 arms...yikes! Must be something with that car fairy or something.
