      Loads of loads

      Today I finished (less paint, its 30f out right now, so no painting) some flatcar loads today.

       

      Another pipe load.  Thin-wall styrene tubing.

       

       

      Large sectional pipe load.  4 sections of thin-wall styrene tube

       

       

      Half a flywheel.  3d printed in quarters.  Some of you have seen this over in my 3d print thread.  Epoxied together, and some filler on the seams.  Needs some more finish work before painting.

      Nice loads Bob.

       

      Where did you get the large thin wall tubing in the second picture?

      I'm not 100% sure (I've had this stuff for years), but my best guess would be US Plastics (https://www.usplastic.com).  Theyve been my go-to for tubing and non-sheet plastics forever.

      Ya got me thinking.  What would a steam era pipe load be made of?  Clay? Iron?

      Sections of cast or ductile iron pipe would be my guess.  They have HUGE flares on the ends.  I bet using PVC electrical conduit would be a good starting point.
