    I have posted some photos of a "village" I intend to model in n-scale. Since there is a spur to a baggage shed from the depot (which was originally constructed by Wm. DuPont in the early 1900's when he owned Montpelier (the former plantation of Pres. James Madison and his family in the 1790-1830 or so time frame I wanted to have a few passenger cars on the siding representing either excursion trains or Pullman cars of Mr DuPont and his guests.

    Has anyone used Con-cor cars? Not to concerned about their running as they will be primarily there as part of the "scenery".

    Essentially, Con-Cor N and HO passenger cars are made by Rivarossi (at least they were). Good quality and detail. The wheels on some though left something to be desired and were better replaced.

    BTW...All of my relatives live in Alexandria, VA.

    You'll be very happy with the Con-Cor cars,as long as you replace the trucks.MTL#1017/1018 are the replacements.Depending on weather it's a 4 or 6 axle truck.
