***   Here is my "Bell of the Eighties". A Mantua 4-4-0 of 1950's.  
** I replaced the cab with a larger one. Also some Kemtron details. The tender is an Olympic brass model. The same tender came of their Reading 2-8-0. There is still more to do with this model before it is complete.

moocow - thanks for posting the photos of the Arkane 4-4-0's. I find old steam engines very interesting and the older brass models are classics. - even if it is a roundhouse queen

Nice old style trains you've shown. Did you ever do any house cars with just 2 axels like the very first that were made?

AHM imported period passenger cars made by at first Pocha. The oldest style of these cars was the Monitor roof car. It was sold as the Lincoln Funeral Car. It was made for the president to travel with. It became his funeral car in which his remains toured the country. This roof line car was representative of the 1860's to 1870's. It was made only by Pocha of Italy. In HO scale this is the only car made for the ready to run Market. Wood car kit manufacturers did make period passenger cars of this roof type.

*  Now AHM not long after marketing the Monitor roofed 1960 passenger car had Poacher make for them an 1870 car with a restyled clearstory light and ventilation roof . A next step in passenger car construction. They made 3 different types of cars. A baggage car, combine car, and a coach car. Here on this site, All be from one set I have the Western and Atlantic Railroad. I need to use 3 posts to show all three.  
* First post the baggage car.
