I was just looking for a way of confirming that purchasing the RS3 parts would give me everything I needed to create a working locomotive. As I noted the terms parts and kits tend to invoke different images.

MacG thanks.

In the depth of the forum I found pictures of the RS3 kit. I think, the only exeption is, that the new kit has trucks from Tillig. They are cheaper and run also well. My model has such Tillig trucks.

Those pictures look fantastic!

Ingo emailed me and said he would get back to me about the contents of the 'Parts' package.

Some new cars:
WIF car lettered using direct inkjet print

NdeM car lettered using decals from ALPS, this time worse than usual. It was enough to check the artwork. This car will be repainted and lettered by inkjet too.

I'd probably just weather it a bit and move on to the next project. Since it's in Spanish it's gonna look odd anyway. I wonder if those cars were interchanged into the US with only Spanish data? I recall seeing Canadian cars with both English and French data....DaveB

Yes, these cars were interchanged quite frequently through California at least. During the 1960's and '70's as a much younger railfan I photo'd a number of Ferrocaril de Mexico boxcars. I would certainly like to have one or two on my TT pike if ever get around to building one. As I recall, all the data on the Mexican cars were in Spanish, only. The area around which I was active in the period also saw a lot of Canadian boxcars, especially Canadian Pacific.

Direct printing by inkjet?! Could you point me to links or sites where I could learn more. Thanks much.
