They also produced only one American coach as well. They appear to be around 1:100 scale in my opinion original gauge I think was 13.5mm but the ones I have are 12mm gauge

Thanks Richard!
I never thought about Wesa, I knew they made the Turbine (very nice example, BTW) but I didn't think about any freight cars.
Larry had told me about the Turbines being more like 3MM than 1:120, but I think I've only ever seen one on Ebay.

There is one on ebay right now, but it is missing the "B" unit.

and the coach is there too:

Too expensive IMHO.

Thanks Al and jp for that information, incidentally, I did hear some time ago that those units were also produced in Amtrack colours but I have never seen one. Apparently there is a Wesa museum in Switzerland that has them on show.

The seller found out that it was N scale. Mystery solved.
