WALTHERS TO ANNOUNCE NEXT PASSENGER TRAIN… – Model Railroader Magazine – Model Railroading, Model Trains, Reviews, Track Plans, and Forums
Here’s my idea for a 11 car North Coast Limited. 1. PS Water-Baggage Car (car # 400- 405) [1 car on train] 2. PS Mail-Dormintory (car # 425 – 429) [1 car on train] 3. PS 56-seat Day-Night coach (car # 587-599) [2-3 cars on train] Note change from original 56-seat coach-those were termed “day” coaches by the NP 4. Budd Dome-coach (car # 550 – 558) [2 cars on train] 5. PS “Traveler’s Rest” Lounge (# car 494 – 499) [1 car on train] 6. Budd 48-seat Diner(car #458-463) [1 car on train] These were the new diners purchased in 1958. The PS diners went to the Mainstreeter and pool trains.

Walthers Track Cleaning Cars Reviewed
(We used Railway Express Agency service boxcar shells to make the cars blend in on the head-end of passenger trains and various period boxcars for freight trains.) Walthers also makes the cars in several paint schemes representing different railroads and eras. While the track cleaning cars are in freight car bodies, like the rest of Walthers’ Trainline cars, these are no-frills cars when it comes to details. Given the amount of handling you’ll give this car as you pick it up and clean the pad, a lack of delicate detail has its advantages. I picked up one of the new Conrail cars for two reasons – first, I know the cleaner will work and second, the paint scheme represents a very distinct car from my favorite prototype. Represents is really the proper word however as the car’s graphics and details capture the spirit of the prototype but are not particularly accurate. A photo of the prototype appears in the Conrail Color Guide to Freight and Passenger Equipment, Volume 1 from Morning Sun Books. In maintenance of way service on Conrail, its patriotic paint was a one-of-a-kind, applied in the midst of a wave of red, white and blue paint schemes during the 1976 bicentennial. Useful tangent, there is some terrific LGB Trains relevant media you can read on the Walthers trains subject matter on the whole, with a specific emphasis on LGB Trains; take a look here: train models.While I wouldn’t expect the details to be changed to match the car, Walther’s could have done a better job here matching the art. Right before we inquire deeper, browse this short reference about the HO scale trains, view reference; truth be told, there is indeed a good deal of quite incredible HO scale trains info available here.The prototype has blue ends, the model white.
