As I get closer to completeling the CN Point St Charles vans and the PC transfer cabs I’m starting a batch of CB&Q waycars. I’m building the 30’ wood NE-7 and I have 12 of the NE-12 waycars on the cutting table now. I’m be always been a big fan of the Burlington do these will be fun.

The real problem will be finding the correct/proper trucks for your CB&Q waycars.

Yes, sources for CB&Q waycar trucks have come and gone:  All Nation (kinda clunky, modest detail), Mullet River - excellent, but gone, Division Point made outstanding  C&NW wooden waycars with very similar trucks - of excellent quality, but don't know if any trucks were brought in "loose", Overland did some wooden UP cabooses with similar trucks - again, any loose?, and finally Sunset 3rd rail did CB&Q waycars with pretty good trucks - - again, any loose?  The "Q" did put a couple of old wood waycars on Allied Full Cushion trucks - kinda wierd, but prototypical!

Trucks, lack thereof, is one reason l have not built that Q combine coach caboose kit. May be forced to put some Walthers four wheel passenger trucks under it.  The Q and subsidiaries had a variety of sidedoor and combine cabooses, as Q fans know.

??Another one of THOSE!!??  What you want to sell is not what I want to buy!

Brother Love: you are a true Model Master to the highest degree. I am sure it took many years to achieve the level of detail you do. Being a fan, modeler and railroadiana collector of Q, I admire your workmanship. Do you have any plans of selling any of the Q waycars?

Des Plaines Hobbies bought the Mullett River line of products and plans on reintroducing them.  I wonder if he will be doing the trucks or could be encouraged to do the trucks?

I wonder if this will happen within our lifetime.


You know, when a tomato grows out of your forehead, it gets you thinking. What do we know about anything? Life is just a big, wild, crazy tossed salad. But you don't eat it; no sir! You live it! Isn't it great? Isn't it great?
