I’ve been playing around with LDD this weekend for a bit.

Via bricklink I’ve bought enough pieces to build a second goal hopper car:

Now these hopper cars are somewhat short, so I decided I need a longer version with a bogie on each end. After a couple of false starts this resulted in:

Also, intrigued by the Maersk train, I wanted to recreate the container wagon … (to build myself one day):
