I would rather not glue the tanks and HUMVEEs to the flat cars ..  what are you guys doing to keep them from falling off the cars?

John I am out of N Scale and not considering moving back to it after starting in HOn3 however my wife gave me a small plastic container years ago from her doll house furniture collection. This product is called Mini-Hold and is used to hold doll house plates, knives and lamps etc to tables and the like. It is also used to hold pictures to walls. It might be worth trying. I believe it is easily removable. It was made by Handcraft Designs,inc Hatfield.PA.
Trust this is of some help.

You guys need to model a couple without tracks. I caught some heading north from Yermo.

Fun Tak!  You can get it at Staples too.  One pack will last many generations when using in N-Scale portions.  :D
