Well in the Z World, I pulled about a 38 car consist last weekend;
cars included 12 of Uncle Will's Hoppers, 3 Robert Ray Covered
Hoppers, 2 FR MoW PRR gondolas, a bunch of MTL box cars and gondolas
plus 8 PennZee PRR hoppers. (That accounts for about 25 of the cars).
The track was MTL snap-track and it was a very level surface.
