Re: GN 66203 - flatcar underframe


Is there a source for the twist ties in HO,  I remember a supplier who had this item in their line along with a treasure trove of similar detail items. Regretfully the name escapes me.

Twisted wire was a common tie down. It did not have to be saved or returned, factories had lots of it around, and no special tools were needed.
