Bruce,

Funny you ask. No.

Actually, there is a company, Boulder Creek Engineering, that has a panel you mount on the fascia. It has a sensor to detect a car on the scale. And, it will generate a random weight number within a range you define. You can even allow for over weight cars. And, you can set up 3 different ranges, depending on the types of cars.
http://www.bouldercreekengineering.com/weighstation.php

And, that would be interesting to add to operations. Add the maximum weight to the car cards (load limit + light weight) and if the scale reads over that, you have to send it back to the industry to reduce the weight. And, you could even record it, if you want. But, for me, I don't want the paperwork. That's why I became an accountant. Instead, I set up a timer circuit to simulate the amount of time it takes to weigh a car.

Thanks for the info you sent to me Chuck! It will be put to good use, eventually! I'm also going to save this thread so I can steal some of your techniques.

I have lights! Yep, the scale house is finally lit up. All that is left is to build the roof, add a sign in the front, and a few castings, such as a trash can, barrel, and/or 55 gallon drum. Besides the lights, I added the signal bell that is in between the double windows and an electric meter in the back.

I can call the scale house finished!

A curious thing occurred. I looked at some plans I had of the PRR scale house and there was a notation on it that stated the roofing was slate shingles. Until then, I was waiting for an order from Rusty Stumps for 3-tab shingles. Whoa, I had some of Rusty's slate shingles left over from another and decided to use them here. I'm sure the other shingles will arrive, tomorrow, and I will use them on another planned project.

So, yesterday, I built the roof. Today I added the smokestack and electrical connection. I also added the sign, barrel, 55 gallon drum, and garbage can.
