    Uk or USA to buy a Broadway import challenger steam loco

    I did it a couple of times about 6 years ago, I completed the CN41 Customs Declaration with the description "faulty item for warranty repair" following the advice of our local post office. The companies used the description "Item returned after warranty repair" and the goods were received without payment of import VAT or duties. As an aside, when Badger and NCE say "lifetime warranty"; they mean it! Nick

    Canadian Pacific 1970s

    Hi James, I've found a part-used set of 87-221 that you can have if you pm me an address. I have used Tamiya X7 for Action Red, it's perhaps a little dark but nobody's commented on it, this is my MLW C424. Nick Palette has used VW Mars Red touch up in an aerosol which may look a little closer. I think Andrew is right about your white boxcar being generic but it looks to be nearly as long as the Thrall door car which would make it a 50 footer, Id suggest taking a look through one of the Canadian Phot websites and eyeballing a close match for your first repaint. http://rr-fallenflags.org/cp/cp-frt.html http://canadianfreightcargallery.ca/cgi-bin/displayrailway.pl?o=cprail All the best Nick

    Canadian Pacific 1970s

    Hi James, If you mean locos, CP was short of motive power in the 70s and leased locos from US roads and GO Transit. I've put a few links below, the sites themselves are a goldmine of information and inspiration. https://waterlooregionmodelrailwayclub.ca/2016/05/that-70s-rent-a-wreck-fleet/ (comprehensive list of the types of locos leased and when) http://tracksidetreasure.blogspot.com There were also US operated lines in Canada in your period, the Canada Southern springs to mind, it was originally owned by New York Central, passed to Penn Central in 1968 then Conrail in 1976 http://www.canadasouthern.com/caso/home.htm It used Canadian build GP7s & 9s, on its trains, I dont think they would have worked in CP consists http://www.canadasouthern.com/caso/diesel-geeps.htm All the best Nick

    Lima Bogie Tank Wagons

    Here's one I did a while ago, the tank body splits horizontally and I think mine was held together by two self tapping screws just in board of the bogies https://www.flickr.com/photos/nicks_trainstuff/14621654942/in/album-72157629728078184/

    Canadian Pacific 1970s

    Hi James, The only Canadian Pacific paint schemes for cabooses ("vans") that I know of are; Red oxide with bright red end on the cupola & body - mostly local service vans http://canadianfreightcargallery.ca/cgi-bin/image.pl?i=cp436995&o=cprail Bright red body with Bright yellow end on the cupola & body - pooled vans used for main line run-through trains http://canadianfreightcargallery.ca/cgi-bin/image.pl?i=cp438583&o=cprail Action yellow all over - all vans repainted after about September 1968 http://canadianfreightcargallery.ca/cgi-bin/image.pl?i=cp434016&o=cprail http://canadianfreightcargallery.ca/cgi-bin/image.pl?i=cp434122&o=cprail As to paints I've used in the past Bright Red - Tamiya X7, Humbrol Signal red, Vallejo Model Color 70-909 Vermillion Action Yellow - Taniya TS47 Chrome Yellow Red Oxide - Tamiya Hull Red XF9, Automotive Red Oxide primer, BR freight Stock brown As to which small switcher - for RTR take your pick from Alco/MLW - S1,S2,S3,S4 all modelled by Atlas, Life Like P2K or Bachmann they all run nicely EMD - SW8, SW900 (Single Exhaust), SW9 (Twin Exhaust) Life Like P2K or Athearn (Life-like is the better runner but Athearn isn't too shabby), SW100RS - Rapido (v nice) Baldwin DS-4-4-100 - Bowser or Athearn (as for the EMDs) Take a browse through the CPR Roster here to see what I mean http://www.mountainrailway.com/Diesel%20Roster%20Page.htm This is a kitbash of a Roundhouse wood sided van that I did years ago, I filled in a couple of unwanted windows with scribed plastic sheet, fitted a curved roof to replace the pitched roof* and added brass ladders on the ends. * Roundhouse also do a version with a curved roof - I'd have been better to start with that one! All the best Nick
