Ive never been a modeler. Mostly just a collector. Built a small layout when i was about 10. Not much to talk about but it was fun. Joined a club and bought a bunch of engines and rolling stock when i was about 35. Mostly Reading.
Started watching Youtube thinking maybe I can build something. Told my wife I'm going to build small and portable. She is very supportive. My first plan. A switching layout. 18" x 6'
I wanted a coal distributor and a small oil company. After running trains in my head found out this was to small. Remember my supportive wife? She said go bigger or you won't be happy. So after five expansions I think I'm happy
The line is Reading and Columbia. Mainly Lititz PA. Around 1950. Of coarse it will be as close as I can model. Lititz Springs Park, the train station and Wilbur Chocolate.
The oil and coal companies are my addition to Lititz. Its been fun so far. Learned a lot. Corrected a bunch of mistakes.
Thanks for looking Lee
Sounds like you have a great plan to work on. Keep us updated.

I couldnt find any photos of similar prototype loads, but I'd go along with Frankie that there should be wooden bulkheads with angled bracing at the outermost pipes for extra stopping power to keep them from shifting while in transit.
