    Ebay is probably your best bet..Good luck as they are rare and expensive when you find one.

    Try Ertl. I bought one at a show a couple of years ago. The package said HO, but I think its more like 1/64th. But does still look good down by the farm.

    Hey, do you know of a way to be able to keep the pups hooked together? There is no hitch on the back trailer so you cant hookem up. I am thinking of modding them some how to make this happen! :)

    OH, and thanks! :)

    Sorry Combat, I can't find them anywere. I think that I heard about them here on the Gauge. Maybe if you make a new thread and ask your question of how to join them together someone will bring up the hitches to and be more of a help then me lol. These things were like little eye hooks that I saw but I can't find them on the web anywere

    Cosidering I've seen some loco bodies from Atlas made to fit Athearn drives.
    I'm sure with a little planning, maybe some trial and error and with a little modllers license thrown in, they could work.
