That's a challenge with much of N scale still Tom. Other then an occasional brass item or if you get lucky, something in plastic. We do have the B&O "wagontops" and Milwaukee Rib Sides, but otherwise it seems we get oddballs...always have! IHB 0-8-0's, CPA C-Liners, Gas Turbines and U50's (although I'm not sure what it thing is doing in my e-mail... perhaps because I'm looking into UP's future? ). Cars too seem to be somewhat unique...UP/SP cabeese, a T&P caboose, etc, etc, so on and so forth. Unlike HO, we N scalers have to either make do, scratchbuild or kitbash. Generally I have to just make do, but I still like to be somewhat in the ball park. This group helps with that fortunately!

Take Care,
