As you can probably tell from several of my posts... I have a tendency to like passenger consists... Hmmmm like the CalZephyr... Aside from Kato' sets which have been available for many years... there have been individual cars made by various manufacturers since N scale began. There have been brass, wood or plastic parts to assemble your own too (if you had the skill and patience). I've seen several example of kitbashes and scratchbuilt consists over the past few years and thought it would be good to have a thread to show what can be accomplished... just in case Kato decides it doesn't want to persue further complete set releases (say it ain't so!!!). A few years ago I decided to expand my passenger consist horizon... which included getting the Fox Valley Hiawatha last year... something I never expected to own when I got into N scale. I've been slowly collecting the individual cars for the Northern Pacific' North Coast Limited... from Intermountain Railway, Walthers, Wheels of Time and ConCor... which gives me a full consist; but not fully prototypical due to the 'artistic license' the manufacturers have taken. I recently finished an Illinois Central Panama Limited consist mostly of Intermountain Railway offerings from the past two years... again another set I'd never figured to own. I'm still working on the Southern Pacific/Rock Island Golden State set as well. Despite my complaints about Kato not having create X, Y or Z sets... life for N scale passenger enthusiasts has been good. If you have any photos or videos of your consists which you'd like to share with us... post them here!
