Since Canadian railways were mentioned.

I have this as yet unfinished model of a PIER bagage car in 1:55.
Not prototype, but I am using it as 1:55n3.

I like to find blue prints of things I like,
and then adapt them to my fictional layout.

Seems to be the trend on this site.

When I had access to a copier that could enlarge/reduce,
I resized many plans, mostly to 1/2 " scale.

What fun to imagine new projects that way.

:)

I'm late to the conversation,

but a I do moderate the Sn42 Conspiracy on Groups IO.

https://groups.io/g/Sn42Conspiracy/topics


The main providers to Sn42 are in NZ.  

Most notable is Railmaster Exports.

Hello TC

Since this has been brought back to the top
someone may look at it in the future and hope for more ideas.


It seems every time the question of Sn42 is brought up,
many people suggest looking outside the US.

That's ok but does shortchange our local 42-inch gauge inspirations.
Many small logging operations used cast off urban transportation equipment.

Think steam dummy locomotives, mostly 0-4-0 tank engines.
Also, there were quite a few Shay locomotives built to 42-inch.


Here is a website developed around one person's interest in 42-inch.
http://www.raccooncrkrwy.com/42gauge.HTM


Personally, I keep coming back to Sn42 as an alternative to On30
for a budget retirement layout in a spare bedroom.

I always look at how much space structures take up
and how easy people are to paint.


Happy modeling.

Ian
