    I just finished laying a double main on a 4x8 layout. I have always been facinated by the McKinley Explorer and for that fact Alaska too. I was wondering if there are any other cars made for the Explorer besides the ones made bby Bachmann. If not, are those well made or are they still toy like? I had a set of lighted Amtrak car years ago and they've held up to the beating any kid could do. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I have a bachmann mckinley, and it looks okay, but never have really run it because I never had a layout with broad enough curves. I think it could probably use more weight, and a few extra details like diaphragms. For better running, the trucks could always be replaced.
