That's a very nice "Ten Car'. I've always looked at the Suydam PE brass when I'm in Ca and thought "Yeah, that would be cool..." then I forget about it...  :D

Thank you Art

Awesome job. I just don't understand why there aren't more PE trolleys available (in RTR or kit form). PE was HUGE and now it's just been forgotten... :?

Thank you JMauer1,

I have almost everything MBE made with regard to PE trolley kits w/resin shells & cast brass details (multiples of some), trolley poles, overhead hangers, etc. Also have some older Western Railcraft kits that do show up on eBay from time to time.
Been meaning to post online some good photos of the MBE & WR kit contents if anyone is interested. Not sure if it helps PE modelers much as both are OOP!

Agreed, I'd love to have a couple of PE juice jacks!
Nice models Paul!

Peteski:  So it does!  I was having internet problems the first night I saw this thread, and apparently that image didn't load.  Thank you for pointing me back to it.

I just purchased an old, new Miniatures by Eric Pacific Electric 1100 and 1446 box motor kit...

now I need a pair of chassis, Santa Fe red for the body,  Union Pacific gray for the roof, and Southern Pacific passenger car green for the trucks...a set of Microscale PE decals and get custom butterfly stripes decals

Cool! I'll be very curious to see how these turn out. I have a couple of the old brass PE kits by Western Railcraft, but mine are just scenery, static models. I'd be interested in the Hollywood car, didn't know Eric has those (although I'd like to see a better photo somewhere).

Ya I know. But when you get on his website, there's no N scale interurbans, just "parts". Am I missing something?
Looking for one of these...

Otoo K. :
there is one in HO on Shapeways. I have pestered him asking about an N Scale one, you might want to reach out to him. He has also made an HO and an O 100 class Briney

@Cajonpassfan Here's some better photos of the MBE Hollywood NT-K4 kit...which is OOP. The kit only contains the resin shell and the qty=2 cast brass, trolley pole hold down detail parts that mount on the roof. I've been attempting plan A.) adapt a Tomytec power chassis to fit inside the resin shell or plan B.) trying to scratch/bash a floor out of styrene with cut outs for the Tomytec trucks
