Hmmm, narrow gauge AND electric, what a great combination ! Los Angeles Railway was an 42-inch electric railway that ran into the 1960s.

Using the Google Play app, I have been reading a traction catalog from the 1920s, in addition to standard gauge, they also carried stuff for the 42-inch gauge, 5' 2", and the 5' 4" versions. Also reading issues of the Electric Railway Journal, the Motormen Union, and traction white papers.

Although I am not going to bid on it, I WANT to, but I can't, have too many projects as it is.

There is another Corgi, this one a Birney Safety Car in O scale, the bid right now is only $7.95 (shipping is kinda high, almost $17), with a day left on the bidding. The seller is isw-gg1, don't know who it is, just putting it here to make the eBay search easier.

I would like to see someone here gets it, since it is going so cheap.

If you really want somebody to bid on it copy and paste here the auction number. This way you create a direct link to the page. Jose.

Here is the location for the Birney Safety Car,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/BIRNEY-SAFETY-CAR-4025-O-SCALE-CORGI-NOT-POWERED-DIECAST-METAL-SER-0094-NIB-/230951812891?pt=Model_RR_Trains&hash=item35c5ccff1b

Looks like it would be pretty easy to convert to a operating street car.
