I may just have to do one. But being a little more standard using an HO truck that Golden put out.

Seems they don't have HO models anymore. I'll take pictures of the four trucks I have and post later. Looks like these might be rare and I shouldn't be cutting them up for rail critters.

I took some quick pictures of the models.



I've already de-constructed one. It's sitting on a pair of Bachmann cable car trucks.

That WP&Y thing looks like a bus rear-ended a car, and they just stuck some train wheels under it and called it a rail bus!

The County Donegal unit is not - it's from it's near neighbour, but broad gauge Sligo, Leitrim & Northern Counties Railway, unit no 2a

I'll have to start digging out my collection of railcar pics....

The second one from Chile...THAT'S THE ONE! Looks like an old Ford pickup front and cab with some doors added on. Great stuff, as usual. Keep em' coming.

Ya know... I don't have a place for a railroad these days and it's likely I won't for a long time but I think I could see myself building some rail buses. #4 down from the top looks like a good first one. I think I'll start looking for the parts for a project like that.
