    I have an idler flat and wooden gondola that I need to build. Not impressed with the instructions on these things. They are a Durango press and rail line kits.

    Tom, no flywheels but it’s runs fairly smoothly for its micro size. I haven’t laid any track yet so it’s hard to run it very much.
    Kevin, take a look at Showcase Miniatures. I like their products and they’re nice folks as well.

    Jim- Is this a water car? Or other commodity?

    I was inspired by a car I saw online when I did a search for narrow gauge tank cars. I’m not positive but I do think it’s a home built type of water car.

    I vote water, or maybe a camera car? Jim camera train.jpg
