The burgundy Chevrolet van proved to be too small for layout modules by itself, so that played a factor in my decision to sell it.

Here is the replacement for the 1988 E-150 that we had years ago that would work as a portable display of TT scale: a 1989 Ford E-150!

And this van has more working features than the 1988 did, plus it only cost $600!

Well, I have found that a rear wheel drive Econoline van does not like the snow so well, so I have bought a new van: a 1998 Chevy Astro van with all wheel drive. Now getting to train shows in the snow will be a LOT easier!

Oh, yes, there are a number of 4x4 or AWD vans out there. I have had two of them thus far, this Astro van and a project 1996 Ford Aerostar AWD. The Astro is so far a LOT easier to work on.

With how bad some of the roads can get around here, having a RWD van is more of a liability than a solution at times. Yes, the Astro is not as big as the Econoline, but this one is far more nimble and can get through the snow a lot easier.
