Just a short note to let people know that I now have the "Creek" series car castings up for sale at my web site. These cars were used on the Olympian Hiawatha and later sold to the Canadian National. They were cast from the original Jim Stillman Nscaleskytops master model.

Check out  http://www.skytopmodels.com

Thanks for looking!

Coach 507 in that photo had the steam ejector air conditioning. I'm doing the Waukesha A/C system. The exterior windows are the same. The difference is on the roof and underframes.

I won't say no but probably not anytime soon. I'm considering doing express (baggage) cars after the coach.
