    Hi all, I am looking for a John Deere (set # 2) N - scale train set. I know they are rare. I didn't know they had them until recently when I saw one on a layout at a train show. I can't find one on Ebay. Seeing if anyone knows where to get one or if they have one want to sell it. Please let me know any info you have on these. Thanks Robert

    Lots of looks but no replies. I can't beleive no one has any of these or know what they are. This must be a hot item that no one wants to get rid of. Hopefully hear something soon. Thanks Robert

    I've never seen this set, but I miss a lot of things. Do you know who manufactured it?

    I looked on eBay, and there was nothing. They were made by Athearn in the early- to mid 2000's. Are you looking for the one with the f59phi, the steam locomotive, or the sd70? I have never seen one in person, and there are hardly even pictures on Google. I suppose you could paint one yourself, but you would need decals too.

    I can't find an N Scale set, so what you saw remains a mystery. As you know, Athearn did make HO pieces.

    Athearn makes some very nice John Deere tractors in N that you've probably seen. I put three on a flatcar:

    No I don't have one nor have ever even seen one. But like you said, maybe a picture will spark a memory or something.

    We own the set #1 (f59phi), but my 5 year old and then my wife would disown me if I sold it. He bleeds Moline Green. Somehow Santa found it on ebay... after running searches there for over a year.

    BTW, if someone has any Athearn John Deere Model D tractors for sale, I'm your buyer. Would also buy the steam 2-8-0 loco versions of this same trainset.

    I understand not wanting to give up JOHN DEERE train set and items. I have always been a John Deer fan. my dad worked for them for years and got plenty of John Deere stuff. Maybe someday I will find a set
