Title: scale trees
Post by: Stan W on December 01, 2007, 11:59:54 AM
I need some help for a large scale flatcar.  Somewhere I have seen bundled christmas trees for cargo.  I need help. These are the trees that are wrapped in twine to reduce their diameter for transporting them.  I need a load for the NP&S flat car.  thanks Stan Wenquist  swenquist@msn.com

Stan,  I found trees at my local hobby store (Hobby Lobby) in their Christmas decorations section. They had them of various sizes.

  You could probably use the small bottle brush trees, & use the same netting that we use for chainlink fence to wrap them in. Think they use it for bridal veils. You could also coat some toothpicks with foam & foliage clusters since the trees will be compressed when wrapped & not much detail will show.   Jerry
