Some are models of actual trains, and some are not.blt1[1) It isn't real. The fellow cut two model locos apart and connected them.

Two BL2s.  Sort of looks a bit like a GG1.  No I wouldn't buy it, but looks like he did a nice job!

     The Pennsylvania Railroad built three of these for emergency tunnel rescues. If the New York Central had needed one, they would have had to haul it to New England in order to switch it to their tracks.THEGALLINE-PRR490797-7s_zps5de9510e

Reminds me of the one or more double-ended unique styled diesel switchers built for Ford (those, and the Rock Island cabbed B units) are two diesels l would have to be restrained from buying.   But l am safe.....not enough buyers...

The fifth photo down is an actual railcar. However, none of the models represent actual railcars. Look at the second picture: that is $436.05 in today's dollars for a four-pack.

It sure looks like a car that could have existed, though. For a fantasy car, it's plausible.

I've been to Hershey PA a few times over the years and love their products, so if I modelled standard gauge and got a good deal on it, yeah, I might have bought one of these!

Hershey's really did have their own trucks. Most of them delivered milk, while ice cream trucks were a distant second. These trucks only went to and from their factories, however. I THINK that none of these models 941_1794600545_tpe16a4df933b59063f36f3c0c31990721hersheyschoc%20truck%20H01020%20BMil_570xN.687592788_oudytkr represent real Hershey's trucks. But I'd love to have them on my lay-out.

The October 2011 Model Railroader magazine introduced this stupendous Bachman EM 1-2-8-8-4 locomotive. Baldwin Iron Works manufactured thirty of them, delivering them all to B&O in the last two years of WW2. Easy to maintain and operate, they excelled in the mountainous regions of West Virginia.

In 1960,3589928 B&O retired the last one, marking the end of their use of steam. A restored loco was accidentally sent to a scrapyard, and none of these magnificent steam locomotives remain.

Aaaaaargh!!!!!!! What was I thinking?

Thank you, Rusty.

I will take 1/48 or even 1/43 models of the first and fourth versions of real trucks posted above, if the fourth is a reversed negative, and not actually right hand drive.

rudolphcarwebSomeone really did issue a train set for The Island of Misfit Toys. I have unsuccessfully tried to find ANYTHING (figures, toy cars, etc.) from the show to use in my Christmas display.

I'm guessing something has to have a counterpart in the 'real' world before there can be a 'model' of it. The GOOD news is there in NOT a Bat Train out there!
