    La Belle passenger cars

    La Belle Woodworking Co. is a kit manufacturer who offers lots of H0n3 wood kits, among them several passenger cars: Open and closed vestibule coach, RPO and baggage car, business car Alamosa etc.

    The kits are perhaps not latest high-tech, but they are fairly easy to build and make fine models. At least I love the La Belle kits. :D

    The price range (without trucks and couplers) is about $30 per passenger car and $20 for a freight car.
    Here is their website.

    Angus I am reworking several "N" scale Overton passenger cars and a friend loaned me several of his NTRAK Nn3 books. I have the Nn3 manual and Robert Sloan's Narrow Gauge Data Book. Both have a wealth of information on detailing these cars. They also have drawings and dimensions on the internal floor plans of the individual type cars. Don't know where you can get copies, maybe someone on the Forum can point you in that direction.
