Hi Folks

I’m looking for the CN F3 or F7 In the red black and white color scheme from MTH premiere. 

Also, the CN  Skytop observation in the black and white color scheme. 

Please email me if you have either item for sale at gcklann@gmail.com   Thanks!

The CN skytop car is a hard one to get.  Find a Milwaukee one and have Christine Braden custom paint it CN. 

I no longer wait decades hoping the companies will make something, or remake, I have it painted up by Christine. 

Thanks Scott. Interesting suggestion. How does one connect with Christine? I’m flying down to come to my first York this fall so I’m hoping I may land one there. Will see!

Send me an email and I will give you her contact info.  She has done custom trains for me in VIA Rail, CVSR, Amtrak, and "auto-train."

Do you have the product numbers for the CN F units you are looking for?

These are the numbers I know of but there may be other releases:

20-5554, 20-5555 or 20-2922

Gerhardt - Simply put, MTH's 'hi-rail' wheels have deeper flanges, blind center drivers, wider wheels, and traction tires and are intended for use on 3-rail O Gauge track. On the other hand 'scale' wheels feature narrower scale-width wheels with more prototypical low flanges and are intended for use on 2-rail DC layouts. Of note is that the deeper flanges on locomotives with 'hi-rail' wheels may contact the track ties on low profile 2-rail O Gauge DC layouts.

For further elaboration go to MTH's website or just google questions on your computer and various results will come up from which you can choose. Incidentally, for any O Gauge engine 'searched' on MTH's website they list whether it's 'hi-rail' or 'scale' in brackets at the end of the product number.

Lastly, assuming you have a 3-rail layout, I note that 'Trainworld' on their website has an O Gauge CN 20-20554-1 (Hi-Rail) F7 listed at $390 U.S.

Hope this helps and Happy Railroading!
