Canadian National E10a Class 2-6-0 #909:

This is the Van Hobbies/Samhongsa product from 1975.

This locomotive has a passable paint job, one of my very first, and a headlight installed. My plan was to take it down to the bare metal and do a really good finish.

My plan, also was to remotor and re gear the locomotive, install a cam for sound and DCC. I got as far as removing the open frame motor and the gearbox, but then I had my encounter with cancer and it (and the other E10a below) got set aside indefinitely.

So, this is for sale, as is. but in the box I have included a NWSL gearbox and a NWSL can motor.

$425.00

Canadian National E10a Class 2-6-0:

This is the Van Hobbies/Samhongsa product from 1975.

This locomotive has a poor paint job (not mine!) which does, however, have the virtue of being a thin one. My plan, as with the 909 above, was to go down to the bare metal and do a really good finish.

My plan, also was to remotor and re gear the locomotive, install a cam for sound and DCC. I got as far as removing the open frame motor and the gearbox, but then I had my encounter with cancer and it (and the other E10a above) got set aside indefinitely.

So, this is for sale, as is. but in the box I have included a NWSL gearbox and a NWSL can motor.

$400.00

Canadian National Lightweight, Smooth Side Sleeper:

This is a built up Athabaska Scale Models kit, custom finished in the green/black/yellow scheme and lettered "Thunder Bay". It has been heavily weathered to simulate a rough fall or winter run of service.

It has scale wire grab irons, ladder rests. American Limited diaphragms have been added, as have highly detailed, close-to-correct Train Station Products trucks fitted with Kadee wheelsets. The car has interior partitions and vestibule partitions with door. The underframe has had extra detail added and body-mounted Kadee couplers installed. This one looks best and runs best on 30"+ radius curves.

The photos show it before the steam, air and signal hoses were repaired. $99.95

CNR 8 Hatch Refrigerator Car (Overland)

This is an overland brass model of the CNR 8 hatch refrigerator.

I originally bought it, despite the fact that someone had painted it for CP, because my plan was to take it back down to the metal and then do a proper finishing job.

The basic paint job on the model was not bad, but the lettering was not well applied. Also the model was not well treated, as the scratches and missing end tack board demonstrate.

A little bit of work, however, and a careful hand will make it a first class piece.

Price: $195.00. [Photo 1] [Photo 2] [Photo 3] [Photo 4] [Photo 5] [Photo 6]

Canadian National 6 Hatch Slab Side Hopper (Overland)

Now that TLT has produced this model in plastic, the brass model can look expensive.

However, if unfinished brass is what you are looking for, this is a virgin, perfect model.

And the hatches all open!

Price: $175.00
