A quick model railway tutorial on how to make coal loads for your wagons.
Hi everyone, this week’s video is another model railway tutorial for you. As you’ll know I quite enjoy shunting on my layout Pickwick Yard and recently I’ve been filling all my open wagons with coal loads to make them look a bit more realistic – and to give the layout a bit of a purpose. You can buy pre-made wagon loads but they’re so easy to make yourself that I thought I show you this quick “how to” demonstration of the simple technique I’ve been using to make my coal loads.
In this video I’m using Coal from the Hattons Loads range. There are plenty of other options out there but I found the Hattons Coal worked really well for me they give you the option of getting a small sample pack too if you want to try it out first.
You don’t just have to use this to make coal loads either. The tutorial works just as for other types of mineral loads too so there’s lots of possibilities for different freight trains. I know it’s certainly made a big difference to my layout!
Thanks for watching.
