First one is a jail house, the second a chicken coop.

Model T, REO, Maxwell...those are what I like.

I had a 70 Caddie once...nice ride and could get up & move!
And a 68 Buick Electra...a real lead sled.

Here is a link to the Silver Northern railcar: http://www.sanjuancountyhistoricalsociety.org/casey-jones.html

Check out the spoke wheels front and back.  Shouldn't be too hard to model.

Michael, if I'm not mistaken, years ago KEMTRON made parts for this SRR railcar in HO & O and the parts could be made now by PRECISION SCALE. Bob Sloan also made brass etchings for the body but I don't know if they are still available. And I believe that I have seen this car available in 1:20.3 and maybe On3 by PSC also.

It shouldn't be too hard to build one.

Kemtron! That's a name I was trying to remember in recent past.
Now, what was I trying to remember it for?

The old Kemtron Shay kit perhaps ?


Cheap (ish)


Loads of people bought them, I believe.

The old Kemtron Shay kit was "state of the art" then and still is! It had a Micro Mo (80:1)/gearbox but needed machining on all the parts! Not for the timid. I believe that kit was/is available from Precision Scale (as are most all old Kemtron parts) but it might take a phone call to them to verify availability. Nothing works better than talking to a REAL PERSON about these things rather than looking at "info" on de net.
