Vancouver show and french class 230 steamer

Thanks for the suggestions, Marquette. The '230' designation makes sense --there's an orchestral work by Honegger called 'Pacific 231' based on the French wheel scheme. The BR38 was used for commuter service with quick stops (info here --http://www.worldrailfans.info/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5744). Other sources indicate the locomotive was intended for passenger service, not freight, and passenger is what I like. Wish I hadn't seen the model. And that's probably enough in a thread about the Brawa E95.

BTTB had some ex-Prussian 3-axle compartment cars (with and without brakehouse, I think all 3rd class) lettered for SNCF. If you can track some of those down, they'd probably go pretty well with the 230 as a local train.

Thanks again. I think the original combination looked like this photo.

So group, how many points do I score for a confirmed TT conversion?


I saw the light! :P You guys have all been great, it's fantastic to be involved with a growing modeling community!

Yeah! I guess so: March 24th 1987, for me. Hope your birthday went well. A good friend of mine had his yesterday, and another is on the 29th, this seems to be birthday month.
