I have these that are a couple prides of my collection.
Someday, they'll be weathered and probably graffiti on them.
These are HO scale.





Post some of your prides here.

I have no trains, but I never knew they made subway cars.
Interesting.

Yes, this one is by LIFE - LIKE.
Almost all of the different models of lines that ran in NY are represented in HO. Some are made in O scale as well.

HO scale 4-8-8-4 Dominion type, mightiest steam locomotive of my freelance Jackson Purchase & Texas Railroad. This is the Monogram (now Con Cor) "Big Boy" kit.







...and examples of the revenue cars it pulled:

Nice detail grab handle ladders and weathering on the two box cars, esp. the weathered trucks on the JP&T 25001.
A commonly missed part.
You collect the older style freights.

We dropped by the our local thrift store on Saturday. These were on the shelf for $1.95 each. I bought them all.

Some had Kadee couplers.

At 2 bucks apiece, you got yourself a great deal. I would have snapped them up also.

This would be one of my pride and joys, ran only once....a Delton Doozie in denver and south park. All the old delton G scale runs were numbered to the 1st 200 pieces...this is number "002".


-here's the other I have, #168...has the option snow plow.

-last few, anyone remember these?...no track power needed-

...these weren't even close to $2 a piece...then either.

Man, Bob, that streamliner (Zephyr, I assume?) is sweeeeet! My wife would have kittens to own that. She LOVES the stainless streamliners!

I guess I'll have to take some shots of some of my N-Scale fleet, eh? Funny that I haven't yet.

old-dragon, no. 002!? Score. Nice collection for sure. Some real classics.

Cuhail, please do post the N scales. I have a few rolling stock in this scale but no engines.

Up until today my rolling stock consisted of one box car that KSO sent me last week. Today on my lunch break I made a trip to our last remaining LHS. The owner saw me looking at a train kit that I'd been scopeing out for a month. The kit is Revells BR 02 Vierzylinder Einheitslokomotive in 1/87 scale. He'd had it on the shelf for a looooong time for $35.00 and no one touched it. He let me have it for $7.00 and even gave me a pine durby car for my youngest son. I thought that was pretty cool.
..............so now I have two trainy thingy's in my train stash.

cool, dude.
Post a couple pictures of the BR 02 Vierzylinder Einheitslokomotive. I haven't seen that one.
And just for info, 1/87 is approx. HO scale.

KSO, here is the box art. Opened it up last night and checked things out. Probably not the greatest kit in the world, lots of flash and ejector pin marks, but more than doable for $7.00. I don't know if I wanna build this one or save it for the T2K thing.



I actually may find something in a bigger scale for T2K if I can afford it since my accessories (guns, missles, etc.) are way to big for this scale. Basically some trucks and frame are all I really need for my idea for T2K so I can't see paying a hundred bucks for an entire kit.

Oh, it's a plastic model kit. Looks like a lot of useful wheels in it that don't have to be scratched.

If you're going to be busy with the Staff Group Build, a weathered boxcar would fit right into this campaign. I'm sure it would look good from your photos above.

KoSprueOne,

Wow, check out that Carrier a/c unit! And are the couplers metal - Kadee? What a fine looking reefer.

So when does the graffiti go on?

I've commenced something a bit unconventional with my rolling stock, a variation of Bill Henderson's idea on his Coal Belt - Bill would put different road numbers (perhaps different road names - I don't recall) on each side of his rolling stock, thereby doubling his fleet. I have started weathering one side and leaving the other clean. Why? Just in case I want "pretty" trains one day and 'realistic' trains the next.

Yes sir! Kadee #158 Couplers

I'm thumbing through my pictures as well as web searching for just the right prototype for the graffiti

Bill Henderson's idea is great Esp. since it's rare to have good reference of both sides of a car anyway
