    You're modeling a two-foot narrow gauge railroad in the 1960s?

    There was a time when there were some 1:48 model kits but that was many years ago. (I've stumbled across them on eBay occasionally but never noted the final price.) I looked at diecastdirect.com but all I found was 1:43 and 1:50. Since you're a narrow gauger, I suspect neither is going to be close enough.

    Try Diecast Direct.

    In the sixties many lumber narrow gauges were still in operation.

    Just because you have 50/60's era trucks doesnt mean the track was laid then.

    You pay the bill, you call the shots I say.
