Partially Loaded Flatcar

When I built my 3 bulkhead flatcar lumber loads earlier this year, I made several extra wrapped bundles with the goal of creating a partially loaded car.

The idea behind this is much more than aesthetics as my goal is to provide a way to indicate to an operator that such a car isn't yet fully loaded or empty and thus must stay in place until the next operation session.

Both attractive and functional, this kind of load is another way to tell a story with your layout without resorting to complicated gimmicks or systems.
