I second Armand's comments about the TLT slabsides. I have four of the CN version.

Amongst the best models I've seen in RTR, the only quibble being the overly thick grab-irons. Modellers with more time thatn I can carve them off and replce them with wire ones. Just an excellent model, IMHO.

Tom Molsen,

Thank you for those links. How about a product review? I built the Sylvan slabside a few years ago and it went together fairly nicely, except that I screwed up the horizontal plate of the B end and had to cut a new plate out of 0.010 styrene. Did you retrofit your slabside with the TMW trucks or keep the True-Line ones? Looks like all of their CP stock is sold out, although Pacific Western in Surrey BC shows quite an extensive list in stock.

Bob Lucas,

I posed some questions about the slabside to the Pacific Northwest RPM group a while back; there are some very knowledgeable people in that group who might be able to help you and point you to a photograph of 380000.
