The banana van looks good John.
I like the idea of labelling the loads for the different wagons too.

Thanks Rob.  Despite the wagons being very similar in size, they are not identical.  It would be more convenient if I could have made generic loads.  Still, I don't have many to manage.

Hi John,

One hump or 2 or even 3, seemed to depend on the type of coal. Most photo's of 10 or 12 tonners show 2 distinct humps from the 2 chutes per wagon at the screens/storage bins, especially with small nuts and slack. Less pronounced with large lumps which look like one hump. Gas works and small house coal were sometimes loaded using 3 chutes giving 3 humps. I know calcined iron ore was also loaded into 10 tonners using 2 chutes per wagon.

Nigel

Well, it's done now so it'll have to be one hump. :lol:

I'll take pics in the morning as I unwrap.

Here's the result of my coaling up:



The plastic wrap worked well.  Not my idea, I saw it somewhere.

Some of the materials I used:  PVA, IP Alcohol for wetting, coal and a pot of dilute PVA mixed with soap and IPA.  I used a pipette to dispense the dilute glue.



Loads removed.  The glue is still wet where air couldn't get at it so I'll leave them to dry thoroughly.

John

Hi John,

You can drill some 1/16" holes into the coal to get the drying moving along. Looks the business. M620356 is definitely from the "Humphrey" mine.

Good idea, they've been drying all day, I'll take a look to see how they're doing.  The Humphrey mine thing is quite a bit of trivia.  I had no idea.
