I have recently aquired a JAD Hiawatha locomotive.  I know the passenger cars are very difficult to find, so I am going to

make up a freight set like that what was offered in 0 gauge.  The 0 gauge version used 800 series freight cars.  I am

thinking of using 200 series freight cars.  500 series might be too small.  I have no cars to set next to the locomotive except 

some 10 series cars from older sets that I have, so I am not sure of my choice.  I will place the Ives coupler with a latch

coupler.

Hi Larry,

Good find on the JAD loco. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I enjoy running mine. The cars show up every once in a while on ebay, so you may find them. If I were going to make a freight train for that loco, I'd definitely use the 200-series cars.

JAD Lines is the name of the company that built the Standard Gauge Hiawatha you see pictured in this thread, in the 1970s. The name comes from the first names of the 3 partners:
