I saw these starting to pop up a week or 2 ago. Definately close enough in my eyes. I got to get me a set..to go along with the flats and boxcar I have painted and lettered..

I have been informed that my set is at the store awaiting my return from Nebraska to pick up. I included two of each coach to re-number and re-letter one set as coach 9 and the Vassalboro (sp?).

Mike, which flat and box car did you select? I thought about those but couldn’t find a good match.

Not really good matches. Bachman. Stripped them and moved the doors on the boxcar. They opened to the left originally and now open to the right. Still a standard gauge boxcar but close enough for me..

I would have to dig. These are no where near accurate, as I am not a rivet counter, but was after just general appearance. Pardon the dust..been sitting a while..like 12 years or so. G scale..just sitting on the On30 layout that used to be at MNG

I'm hoping for a 3-rail O scale version, myself. But I'm weird like that.

As would I

They don't look cheap but they do look like fun!  :)

I wish that Bachmann would re-release its Forney models in On30. I wish someone would make a model of engine #52 in On30. I wish, I wish...

I am hoping to build a kitbashed On30 model of No9 using an HO mechanism I have.
Does anyone know where I can get a line profile drawing like is used on the museum logo.
I could probably work from the logo but it's pretty small. Also, what id the driver diameter- I van scale the drawing from this.
Thanks - Bob Springs.
