Question by Zachary: what is the usual consist order for an ho scale work train on a regular model railroaders layout?
I’m looking to get the necessary cars, but i don’t know the usual consist for a real work train.

Answer by Freenacious
Engine, box cars, tanks, gondolas, flat cars. If you’re asking about the appropriate order then you’ll have to get a switchman on her to answer that for you. Usually, you don’t put a tank with hazardous material next to say a flat car or gondola that has pipe or something that may potentially rupture the tank jacket in the case of an accident.
