    Here is an Erie TOFC with a trailer. Again, it is all evergreen styrene except for the trucks, couplers and brakewheel. The guardrails are make from photo etched e-8 grills by Plano.

    Thanks guys. It's good to hear some positive feedback from some N scalers. I have a couple of N scale model railroader friends but rarely see them (they are so small!) . My good friend Gary Pfeil is in HO but won't let me run N scale on his layout (you know how those HO guys can be!!):D :D :D

    Nicely done Blake. Could use a few on my layout. Where did you get the trailer tires from?

    Made the tires out of Evergreen styrene tubing.
