Re: Video of the Day

Hey Bill, those TTf models are scratch built, they are not H0f models. Auhagen offers TTf models that do not bust the budget. The TTe 0-4-4-0 looks like made by Modellbau Veit.

Re: From Vancouver Island to the Prairies on a 4x8

Re: Canadian PS-1 look-a-likes

Railroad Model Craftsman did some articles on Canadian 40' boxcars. CN was done in August and 93 and February 94. CP was done in October 94 and March 95. Did MacG by any chance acquire those issues recently?
