    I wanted to know if IHC rolling stock models are any good? I was thinking of bidding on some models on eBay but the models look a little cheap so I thought I would ask before I bid. Any thoughts?

    I have bought an old-time flat car, and was quite happy with it. It had a cast frame so it was heavy and tracked well. The wheels were plastic, but could be easily replaced with metal wheels. I think all of the truss-rod old-time cars use the same frame and should run equally well.

    I converted the car to narrow gauge by both narrowing the deck and filing some off the frame. It still tracks well, but the details are a little generic.

    I can't say much about the other cars, but I hear the passenger cars are good.
