I'm planning on producing some of the rolling stock of the Ohio River & Western Railway, a 3 foot gauge railroad.They are suitable for both HOn30 and HOn3, there will be versions for both gauges.They are designed to sit on my trucks, available for both gauges.
The first one available is a flatcar, with or without stakes.
Here are the two versions with stakes,fitted with the appropriate trucks and couplers.

To weight the model I glued some strips of lead between the sills.I used EZ line to make the truss rods.

This is the HOn30 version, painted and fitted with micro-trains 1015 couplers.

There are two small supports for the handbrake wheel at one end.They need to be drilled out to accommodate whatever you use, I used some 0.4mm dia. brass rod.The finished model:
