    Hi,

    How many model railroaders, who like myself, also include a circus train. My railroad layout is HO scale, but I have a collection of 1/4" circus wagons which I display on specially built circus flat cars. The circus wagon modeling brought me into model railroading where I changed scale to HO. I have photos of both hobbies on my website. I would like to hear from others who also model circus wagons.

    Best

    Circus Wagons

    Hi Nick, I don't model anything circus now but was wondering if you remember the old Wardie~Jay HO circus wagon kits that were wood and cast metal? Used to like to build them because you could finish one in an evening execpt for painting.:)

    WARDIE JAY

    HI VIC,

    YES I HAVE MADE A FEW OF THE 1/4" SCALE THAT THEY SOLD. THOSE WERE FUN KITS, BUT I ALWAYS HAD TO REFINE SOME OF THE PARTS OF THE UNDERCARRAGE AS SOME WERE A BIT OVER SIZED.
