      I picked this up at ECLSTS and decided it really doesn't fit with my 1:20 EBT rolling stock.  It was beautifully detailed and painted by Jim's Model Trains in Pittsburgh (I think.)  $75 plus shipping.

       

       

       

       

       

          As I tell my kids (and myself, especially!) when a good thing takes a wrong turn, "Let's just start over."

    • Sorry just saw the PM and responded.  I thought the site sent a notification when PMs were received?

    • I bought a Smith Pond Junction kit a while back that is just to small for my RR.   It is their Prairie Station Kit, scaled at 1/24 it measures 12"x7"x6-1/4".

       

      To say this is a kit is stretching that label a little.  What it consists of is a pile of strip wood, some instructions and templates.   I have no use for it, before I break it down for stock is anyone interested in it?  I will give it up for $20 plus shipping, paypal only.  SPJR is out of business, so if anyone wants one now is your chance.   Speak up if you are interested, this sale ends on 7/21/2018.

      These are very tempting...

       

         Tell me about it. I keep promising myself I won't buy more cars until I've detailed and put the ones I already have into service....but....but.....but.....

       

      Promises, promises.

       

      I think I might have herd me make the same promise to myself, repeatedly, both before and after purchases, many purchases, too many purchases.

    • I wish someone would "jump"  as I really need to free up some space.  According to Kevin Strong they make great early EBT wood hoppers and I have the article to prove it.

      Thanks for the endorsement Fred.

    • Not long ago, I would have jumped at this opportunity...they are durn hard to find.

         But; I have as many as I can use.  They are good cars, for an ore train operation in NG.  Having at least ten of them in a train looks great...15 would be even better, if you are employing any loco larger than a 4-6-0...20 would work well behind a B'mann C19.

         They convert easily to Kadee body mount 1906/820 couplers, and look much better with them body mounted.
