    Can anyone tell me where I can get some Rock Island passenger cars in N scale? I would prefer the silver cars.

    Thanks,
    Andy

    Andy,

    I havn't seenm any out, I think your best bet would be to buy an undecorated set and decal them your self. Micro-scale sells the decals.

    Andy,

    I believe I've seen a five-pack set in a hobby shop here in Tulsa, OK. If I remember right, they are red and silver. Four assorted cars (baggage, diner, coach - not sure exactlly what combination) and an observation car.

    The railroad specialist at the shop is a Rock Island fan, so if that set doesn't suit your needs he might have some other ideas. I'll get more details on the set above and pick his brain today or tomorrow. Get back to you as soon as I can.

    wrong railroad

    Andy,

    Sorry, the cars I had seen were Frisco, and the shop specializes in HO so they couldn't put me on to any leads for N. I'll run your question buy the guys at the local N-scale speciallty shop next time I'm in there, proabably early next week.
