Modeling the Soo Line

Modeling the Soo Line

Postby AstroGoat760 » Wed Aug 29, 2018 8:20 pm

We have moved into a farm in Soo Line Territory (at least formerly territory of the Soo Line). I do not see us leaving Soo Territory, so we are going to focus on Soo Line as well as the Northern Pacific and Great Northern.

Regarding the Soo Line: aside from the MTB SWs and the limited availability from Lok-n-Roll, what out there was made for the Soo Line in TT scale?

Siggi's Modellbahn Shop offered "bay window" caboose, made by Ingo Schwaetzer
Old topic on this forum, but it looks like Siggi's site is off.
siggi-s-na-tt-t1501.html

Another topic:
cabooses-from-ingo-schwaetzer-t2338-10.html

I do not have such caboose. I do not remember, if I missed that topic or maybe I didn't have enough money...

My first TT scale American locomotive was the old HP Products 2-8-0 "Consolidation" steam locomotive, painted for DSS&A, the predecessor of the SOO Line. I have bought it on Ebay; do not remember who painted it. Chris Happe?

This locomotive was the reason why I decided to model SOO Line.
Nevertheless, I still do not know a lot about the real SOO Line railroad.

JP's SOO version is spot-on:
The SOO had 100 1937 AAR box cars... #136000 - 136198 (even # only)
Car shown is a 1950's re-paint with the billboard lettering.
