    Is there a recomended weight for rolling stock? in 7mm I go for about 250g  or 100g plus 1g per mm length over  the buffers, so I was thinking about 375-400g, any thoughts?
  2. My BR open weighs about 8 oz. This was necessary to compress the springs sufficient to allow a little upward movement. It runs very nicely as a consequence. If you scale down from the prototype, you get about 1oz per ton, and I would guess that what you are suggesting would be about right, but really, the key thing is to be consistent.
