D&RGW vestibuled passenger cars.

Mark Kasprowicz
 

You might find the Soho version of the 319 a bit more common than the Balboa and there is also the PSC model of the same, more expensive but better detail.  As for trucks, sadly the best are Blackstone and not available at the moment. Didn't Grandt line produce passenger car trucks at one point? But PSC carefully assembled are OK especially for a one car train like the Pagosa Junction train.
But the prices being asked of brass passenger cars these day is very high. I used to think that $120 was my limit - they're twice maybe three times that now. I just picked up the three car Blackstone Chilli line set complete with DCC lighting bars and marker lights. Paid $350 for them here in the UK. I'm well pleased with that.

Re: Blackstone Stock Cars BLOWOUT SALE!

Hi:

Does anyone have an HOn3 #319 Balboa (or other manufacturer) coach for sale.  Prefer painted and lettered.

Also, I'm looking for any Blackstone cars and a set of good, free-rolling, reasonably-priced trucks to put under a Pagosa combine.

Gratefully,

Bill+

What feels like a very novice question: Why do many MR steam locos have their pilot trucks attached to the frame in such an un-prototypical fashion. I'm guessing to make them less susceptible to derailing.

I told Bill that I would post this information here and on the Chili Line group and see if we can generate enough interest, via order commitments, for him to be able to go into production.  I, myself, will take 2 kits off the initial run, if he does go into production.  How many other people out there would be willing to commit to buying a kit so we can get this rare bit of nostalgia from the Chili Line built?

I have a United Calwechen shay thats Hon3. It was professionally built by the Shay Fixer. It has a sound system and a digital controller board. Its painted with glass installed in the appropriate places.  It won't be cheap but it's a marvelous engine. Never run on a layout etc.

What plan of the station is Banta using? The Maxwell plans are not correct as Dan Pyzel has pointed out. My scratch built model was built using these plans and is incorrect as to window and enclosed stairway on the front bay section. One of our members posted their cad drawings of the station on our site which shows the station as it looked. Note that no photos show the bay section. Either way the station is really neat but it would be great if it was completely accurate to the prototype.
