Zsolt,
Yes, I was a bit concerned how one would get the large quantity of old tyres to fill an open wagon, but your suggestion that a resin mould could be made up using a small number of tyres is a goody!
Also, you mentioned as a load possibility something called 'teff'!
What is this?
I'm not going to take the easy way and look it up on Mr. Gooly!

Bill,

Teff is a kind of _very_ small seed originally grown for food around Ethiopia. The grains are so small that they pass for N scale potatoes:

As for cast resin wagon loads: the stamping technique with a one-way clay mould has the advantage that you get absolutely unique loads for each wagon with reasonably little effort.

Cheers,
Zsolt

Zsolt,
Australia sends some of its recyclable stuff to China for processing there.
I wonder how this is transported?
If by rail, could go in open wagons In bulk, or perhaps compressed into bales?
Difficult to replicate in model form.
