Looking for opinions if many g scalers weigh their cars for outdoor railroading to keep cars from derailing. For example, a 10” ESSO tank car weighs 1 lb 11 ozs. Recommended weight according to a g scale chart I referenced, is 2 lbs. 5 oz. l have read where pennies or nuts & bolts are placed over the axles to give the freight or passenger car added weight.
