    It appears Three Brothers is now Golden Spike Industries. Walthers has "Coach Shell -- CB&Q" in stock but "Cab Shell -- CB&Q" and a lot of other parts are special order only.

    What is the exact list of parts needed to make one coach and one cab car?

    Cheers

    I don't remember. I've bought two cars finished, the third was a kit. An Aluminium-u-profile and other parts like ends, windows and trucks. The bottom was wood.

    I might have to do some more looking. Walthers and a few other places have lots of components listed but no indication of which combinations are needed to build a complete car.

    Thanks for the info.

    Cheers
