thomashmaine;Does anyone know if there is rolling stock available with construction equipment like tractor or dump truck? Or do you buy the diecast master trucks and put them on a flatbed?
Thanks for the feedback. Do you have a picture of what the strip wood chocks would look like?thomashmaine;
I don't know of any flat cars that come with construction equipment on them. I do have some that came with two truck trailers attached.
There are many models of cranes, bulldozers, power shovels, dump trucks, etc. available in HO & N-scales. I suggest buying your favorite machines and loading them on a flatcar. Use stripwood chocks to copy prototype practice. They could also be tied down with gray or silver sewing thread to represent steel cables. If you want to be able to remove the machines, use tiny but powerful, round, rare-earth, magnets from Home Depot. The magnets could be mounted under the flat car deck, and a tiny bit of steel sheet could be super glued to the bottom of the machine.
Good Luck & Have Fun;
