Found some very old solder probably from the sixties and decided to use it to weigh down a couple of freight cars. rolled it flat, used some metal glue and works pretty good.

I saw way back when in the model press of using very thing solder wrapped around the truck axles. It added weight below the center of gravity on the car and the trucks tracked very well. I tried it on one car. Worked great. One problem though, it didn't look very prototypical.
