#toptips - When making your own "loads" ie coal or ballast it is possible to obtain very realistic "coal" from your local Pet store or Aquatic store in the form of "filter grit". It is exactly the same size as the "modelled" coal, black in colour and comes in 1kg bag priced £3.95! This will go a long way in making loads for your wagons - want to have a ballast load? just paint it with grey emulsion or artists paint. The base for your load should be made from card and removable.
