Excellent post -- it's not like there's a lack of reference material out there.  The MT PS-1 has been one of my peeves for a long time.  How long has this tooling been around?  I have some that are over 20 years old.  Would the N scale market support the options available on the HO Kadee PS-1s?

Believe the Micro-Trains 40 ft. PS-1 was introduced in 1972, which makes it 35 years young...the underframe and trucks have seen some changes, but not the rest. BUT, it still stands up well against the competition.  8)

Gawd, now I've seen everything - Ed blogging about model railroading. No wonder his progress on that railroad is glacial.  ;D ;D ;D

I can do this at the office and call it "research" :-)

Didn't the scenery behind that CR Geep in the photo look familiar? ;)

That did it for me. Soon as I saw it, I started looking closer at who's site this was. Nice blog though.

Agree 100% - it's the best "plain Jane" PS-1 for the N crowd.  I'm still jealous of the Kadee versions -- specifically the door varieties.  Maybe that's an opportunity for aftermarket parts.

Marty, I'd be really interested to hear your take on my (limited) comments.
