Sweet!  The tank loco is a Minitrains HOn30 loco, perhaps with spread drivers.

I think the brass side dump cars are from West Side Models.

Very nice!  Looks like you're all set to model the RGS!

I was going to say that the tank engine looks like an original Varney Docksider with additional details and cab.

 :)
   about 1953 Lindsey Models made a Die Cast TT scale
  B&O Dockside loco kit.later Kemtron had them,today
  if the Tooling still exists Precision Scale should have
  that somewhere.
  if that loco is based on the Mini-Trains steamer it
  should be easy to spread the wheels to HOn3.
  done that a long time ago with a Mini-Trains Plymouth
  JDT loco,but still havnt figured out a way to mount couplers
  on it,any ideas ?
  HOn3 is like N Mechanisms on almost HO sized bodies.

I have finished the brass C-19 seen above in its raw state!
 :D




Just the decoder left to install. I'm very satisfied with the look of it.

Weathered the Blackstone C-19.
I used it to try some new paints and techniques.
