    mth premier auto racks, in the rock paint, it says they will run on o-31 curves..... but look at the over hang on my o-36.....lol and they are too tall to go under my track, for the best look they need 054 or bigger,

    i need to change a few things on my layout to run them, or just run them at the club....lol

    :mrgreen::mrgreen: That wouldn't make it through my tunnels. In addition I would have to move some buildings and cut down some trees.

    i new what the book says for the size of these cars was before i ordered them,,,, but it really did not hit me until i got them and but them on the track.....lol i had 3 others ordered from the 2008 mth book in a different road name before i found these at jims train shop online.

    i did not know they ever came out in the rock island road name,,,, maybe i should cancel the order for the 3 2008 ones and find 3 more rock island ones....lol
