  1. Also,
    my wife purchases two LED light bars for fish tanks (Amazon is far less price).
    She is using those on her stainless steel rods kitchen rack.
    They have 2 white LEDs for every 1 red color bulb.
    She starts new plants under the lights. ( they work much better than non-LEDs )
    She can put greenish near-ripe tomadoes there and they get red in 1 or 2 days.

    Getting back to the thread title "Ideas Wanted: Flat Car Loads".

    This is a Exactrail bulkhead flat with those little metal tie wires they use for artificial flowers. There is like 10 packages on this load to simulate the re-bar. I worked on this off and on for about 3 years. Started before the Exactrail car even came out. Anyways a few photos. The model as well as prototype is a very heavy car. The prototype photos were taken by me in GJ. I made the loads to be removed. Maybe some day I will put wood on the deck, but right now, its just good enough.
    Thanks for looking,

    And for the prototype images, photos by me, in Grand Junction CO.
