Six-Pack (3 pairs) scale model load shields (also known as heap shields) originally designed to modify Train Miniature Pullman Standard PS-3 open top hopper cars for the Tennessee Central.  Works great on other hopper cars or gondolas as well.   Three pairs gives you enough heap shields to upgrade three rail cars with shields.

These are manufactured from a tough laser-cured photopolymer.   Use cyanoacrylate (CA) glue (Super Glue, Krazy Glue etc) to attach to your existing car, then paint and weather as desired.

Other items shown in photos for size comparison - NOT included.

Scale model is for display and operating model railroad load / modelling and is not a child's toy. 

For use by railroad modelers age 14 years minimum.

For protection during transport, these ship attached to a plastic support structure.  Please gently and carefully break the supports free by hand, and then sand the bottom of the shield flat using just a few light passes with 400 grit sandpaper. 

Thanks to Art Miller @ Rail Transportation Management Specialists for the idea and for helping to bring this product into being.
