    Brandon: As I, and several others noted, in our posts, there are sources of S scale buildings. I would suggest getting a recent copy (April 2007) of Railroad Model Craftsman magazine. Inside the front cover is a full page advertisment for several S gauge companies. Also listed is the NASG organization. www.nasg.org They can probably direct you to many more sources of buildings. Also listed is a Publication called the 1:64 Modeling Guide www.1-64ModellingGuide.com They are offering a free copy of their magazine. Have fun

    Ozzy, if you're running O27 trains, 1:64 vehicles are the closest match you're likely to find, although a lot of people use 1:43 or 1:50 vehicles even though they're significantly oversized. Personally, I use 1:64s. It keeps the trains from looking smaller than they are, and they're a lot easier to find and less expensive than 1:43s. True 1:48 scale diecast vehicles are very scarce.

    Here are a few to try.










    Be aware that most of this S scale stuff is in kit form and some, particularly the laser cut stuff is expensive. There is very little available ready built.

    I don't mind building up a kit. What's the fun in a pre built kit?
