What would get you to change eras?

It would cost me all my second generation diesels, but I'd love to model a train of these babies...

Of course, I could make an offer for Chrysler, and I can do Furies and Belvederes again in 1:1 scale!!  Those krazy krauts just didn't know what they were doing...

Hmmm...shouldn't be too difficult to model one of those...

A flat car, a little styrene and some CMW cars...

Of course you could also talk nice to one of the manufacturing wizards like KelNScale or Mark4 and maybe they could make a kit to attach to a flat car.

tempted into adopting an alternative era...

Support fine modeling

Just the money to do it, AND a good way to justify it with the wife. I`ve thought of doing the Pennsy in the late 1950`s..
You`ll never find a Philly cheese steak on a menu in Philadelphia. It`s called a cheesesteak and we all know where it`s from...

OOOh, I like that car. What road is it, I can't read the reporting marks from the angle of the photo. And if there are more photos, please post or post links.

I ordered a slew of those CMW '59 Fords . My plan is to put them on those white metal car carriers , and then on flats . I would really like those auto flats to be made though .

If you're talking about the auto carrier photo, the the road is Saint Louis-San Francisco (the "Frisco").  The other photo is on Southern Pacific trackage.

An accurate B&M Berkshire with the proper coffin water heater, and not in brass.

If somehow you could add charm and character to the modern era I may bite.  ;)

I've been looking for an N scale 58 Fury for a couple of years.

  Any Locomotives and cars for the "FIDDLETOWN & COPPEROPOLOS" a railroad that just begs to be modeled. Of course you must read the book by Carl Fallberg last published in 1985 by Hheimbburger House Publishing in River Forest ,Illinois, or be a reader of the old "Railroad Men's Magazine". The Micro Ace Atlas 2-6-0 might be a starting point for several of the locomotives.                                                                                                                             Nate Goodman (Nato). Salt Lake, Utah .
