Great conversions, Gilbert!

I especially like the track maintenance truck.

Have any pictures of your layout?

Very cool, Gilbert. My favorite pieces of equipment are rail trucks and "critters" made from old Model T's, etc. Nice modeling by the way. I have seen your name in the model RR publications, welcome to our little group. I know you will enjoy being here.

This time they are road vehicles, two Mack AB and one AC kits from C.H.B. scale 1/48, now Sierra West Scale Models but currently they are not available
The construction of the No. 5 type AB had been an article in the Narrow Gauge and Short Line Gazette in Nov / Dec 1990.
Construction in white metal and brass.

Good looking trucks, nicely finished and loaded.

Shame that the kits aren't available

Hello,

I found this site that had a good collection of early vehicles.

http://www.track48.com/shop/product.php?productid=1512&cat=8&page=1

http://www.track48.com/shop/product.php?productid=1300&cat=8&page=1

Many of the Russian models are based on Mack and Fords.

Cheers,

Peter G

No need to apologize for your English.  I don't know about anybody else on the forum, but your English is a whole lot better than my French.
