TShearer, the humvees are by Maisto, and I've purchased them from a variety of sources. Walmart used to have them, most recently I was able to find them on line. I still have a pair in original packaging, I'll try to post a photo tonight of the package.
Ron, On this car I used the big pipe cleaners often sold for crafts. Burn off the fuzz, and the wire structure looks a lot like chain. I would twist one around the vehicle axle just inboard of each wheel, then run down thru a hole in the deck and twist together underneath. You can get the pipe cleaners at Craft stores or Walmart.
Ron, here is a photo of the Humvee package, and one of the pipe cleaner before and after the fuzz is burned off. One piece of advice, burn it off outdoors, if you want to keep your spouse/family happy.
Thank you and give 'er a spin. It is a fun and easy upgrade that only cost about 6 bucks. LOL there will be enough edge banding left over for about 18 more cars... Hmmm... going to have a chat with money bags. Ted

Hey Gang, I drew up an AtlasO Deck Girder Bridge for my layout while I had some free time today and am posting the file to share. Here are some notes and a tutorial to assist you with using the bridge in your layout design. I may make some small modifications to the bridge and will post them if I do. I have included two bridges in the SCARM file which can be found in the Attachments section below. To save the SCARM file, right click and select Save file as... Add the...
Hello, I know that several railroads had or have domed sleeper cars. That meaning, cars with an upper level dome deck and sleeping accommodations down below. Did any railroad put sleeping accommodations actually on the dome deck? A sort of "Sleep under the stars" roomette or bedroom.
A couple of guys asked for the details of how I added a red oak wood deck and load to a Menards flatcar, so here goes... Here are the donor and recipient flatcars - Disassemble the donor. In this case it is the Menards black Penn...
The homemade Espee domes has long sofas, where you could stretch out after dark, and kinda get the effect of a true sleeper dome. In the summer of '69, I did just that going from Oakland to Ogden, on the City of Everywhere. Great sleep, and nobody kicked me out !
