I am looking for a couple of US G scale items.
No I haven't 'turned'.
I am doing this book for the last year Baccalaureat students at the lycée called 'My Antonia'. Bill Wray exceptionally kindly helped me by making a priceless copy of the film. It's an American immigrant pioneer story that features several references to the railroad.
Having studied the book, the author, the geography and history it would be nice to take this a stage further with the students in the 3D form.
What better than to 'combine' (good pun) work and hobby. G scale tains in the classroom......!
Thus I am looking for a small (2-4-0 Casey Jones type if possible) US steam loco from about 1880s plus 1 small coach.
I've seen Bachmann stuff and I can buy a whole 'Silverado' train set brand new for about 200$ but I think that is a little bit extravagant as I really just need the loco and 1 coach. An Aristocraft 'shorty' type would ideally suit me best.
I have a few US wagons already to make up a train and plenty of track of course.
