STICK-ON LEAD WEIGHTS
Stick-On Lead Weights offer the easiest way to add weight to your locomotives and rolling stock.

Segmented design and a variety of sizes allow Use of these self adhesive weights in almost any type of equipment.
MOLDABLE LEAD WEIGHT
Moldable Lead Weight is perfect for applying weight to difficult spaces where traditional lead weights won't fit. Contains over 90% lead but is soft enough to be molded with fingers (no tools needed!) to almost any shape. It can also be glued with most adhesives and will not harden over time.
.08 or 5/64" in diameter lead balls that can be poured into any area and held in place with diluted white glue.
Lead Sheet can be used for many applications where weight is needed and space is limited. The thinner size sheet can be cut with scissors, the thicker size can be cut with sheet metal shears or the scribe and bend method, this is a similar method used for cutting sheet styrene. Use a steel ruler, scribe a line 2 or 3 times with a hobby knife. Then bend the sheet back and forth until it breaks at the scribe. Straighten the edge with a small hammer or pliers. Use Goo, Plyabond, or any other type of contact cement to fasten the sheet to the project. Sheets are 4.50" L X 2.75" W
85' FLAT CAR WEIGHTS
Practically any modeler who runs intermodal trains has a fleet of Athearn 85' piggyback or all-purpose flat cars. Unfortunately, these cars have a few short comings that prevent them from running reliably on many layouts. Thanks to these A-LINE flat car weights, you can dig those cars out of the closet and get them in top running condition. Use both weights (end & center sill)) to double the Athearn 85' piggyback or all-purpose flat car's empty weight (from a stock 2.2 oz. to 4.5 oz.). Both types of weights are precision cast in white metal. End weights replace the bolster section of the flat car ends and add 2.0 OZ. of weight per car. Additional features:
. lower car height resulting in a more prototypical appearance and a lower center of
The center sill weights are designed to compliment the end weights but may be used alone. This weight kit directly replaces the original plastic center sill casting and stock weight. It will add 1.3oz. of weight to the car and also lower the center of gravity.
