"a fellow poster sent me a part to build a new car"





I'd be careful that Homeland-Insecurity don't find out about that U.S.Postal-Service terror!
If caught and not even fairly convicted, you could get forever in Guano-Tonamo-Box prison.

Looks like the "Larry Car" driver didn't drop the wireless-active-waste down a mine shaft after all.
It's back, and they are multiplying out of control, onto innocent layouts, and mutating into meat stew!

Since the active Gn15 critics society here, are so fast to quickicize any aesthetic appraisal,
instead of their rude-names, I thought I'd invent some road-names for the wonky wagons.




Unappetizing Aggregates A.G.
---------------------------------




Darth Vader Persistent Plastic Products Ltd.
------------------------------------------------




Mad Cow Meat Packing & Sauce Inc.
----------------------------------------


and last but not least, the newly mutated model of, the load that launched a thousand lumpen




Guano-Tonamo Boxed Bat Compost Co.
--------------------------------------------


Food for thought, the road-names I mean, not the Death-Stars bat compost and meat stew prison dinners!

Don't laugh...
I found a set of plastic food measuring spoons,
that had one spoon that is the right size and shape for a slag car in my scale.
Now, if I just could justify having several sets of those spoons missing one in each set,
I'd build more slag cars.
I'll find a photo or take one...

That ravioli container looks to be perfect for some kind of car...
plus you can have a snack in the process.

Woodie

I wouldn't even dare for a single minute!
The attack of the zombie ore wagons is what modellers nightmares are all about!

You swipe them real hard with a baseball-bat and only their couplers fall off.
You hit them hard again and there's no sign of any serious rivet damage at all.

There are no rivets to damage!

They just keep on coming towards you in that un-dead lumpen lumbering fashion.
There's nothing you can do, until your layout is overrun with un-dead plastic bins.

The zombie ore wagons are coming for you!
Be scared, very very scared!

There are most likely many food and other containers, that with some work,
could become credible rolling stock on a tramway.

If your timeline is after rivets were no longer used,
there would be no need to simulate rivets.

I'm not sure when welded construction came to be favored over rivets.
Anyone know the answer to that question?

A quick search shows that welding was making many advancements in the early 1900s.

During WWII Henry Kaiser was launching ships like crazy,
because he built ships in sub-assemblies and welded instead of riveting.

Don't we often tweak history to fit our needs?

So I guess rivet counting must go back many, many years.

I was at a local CVS today and they had some toy cars on sale,
including a 1940 Ford Pickup 1/24 scale for $12.99. 

I know not all CVS stores carry the same thing,
but might be worth checking out.

Here are some signs from my collection.  OK to print them out to use on the layout.  Regards, Dave L.
