Just have a couple of pups in this dogfight, but one is an unbuilt 4 bay hopper similar to that above, with MI-LOCO in the casting on the bottom. It came with several hopper ends/other parts, but has a broken coupler extension on one end of the center frame casting.  The second casting kit is a complete boxcar kit in a Scale Model Railways (subsidiary of Megow) red box. Car side is 1/2" shorter than the hopper's, so may be O vs. 17/64. No fast way to get photos.

Hello 17/64ths fans .....

found on facebook today ... an old Life photo of soldiers playing with soldiers and Mini-Scale trains... resolution is not great ..but you just make out the outside 3rd rail on the first track ..and sweeps on tender   . 

That is a huge collection of Mini-Scale freight cars !!!...no wonder they are hard to find the Army bought them all . 

Cheers Carey

I think I just scored a Mi-Loco K5 aluminum shell and steamchest for a few bucks.  The chest is the raw casting. I have a couple of spare scale craft frames might see if it fits or not.  If not willjabe to make a frame I guess.

Would love to use a set of these Baldwin drivers on it but I don't think the K5's ever got Baldwin discs but on the other hand, it doesn't really matter lmao.

On the other hand, anyone got a spare boiler front, tender or frame I'm all ears lmao
