Well this shipment came in today. Pristine condition! All metal kits. Wow I couldn't believe it!

The refrigerator car is available if anyone is interested in it. All metal with pretty good detail!

So now I have Tank Car #TRB 7944 and #TRB 7949. I am in the hunt for (2) more then that's it on the tank cars for my Timken facility! just looking for a few more Timken box cars. I am unaware of any other HO scale cars that were made. I know in prototype they had gondolas. I may have to paint those.
How much for the reefer?

Will you keep it as is, or do some upgrades, it looks awesome!
Most likely I will leave it as is with the exception of the wheels and couplers as I will replace those.

There are (2) other tank cars I am looking at getting that are really in rough shape I may get those. One can be revived but the other will look good sitting in a deadline track.

What road numbers? If you are willing to let go for sale or trade or whatever. I have the following road numbers:
Numbers RBX #81 (metal), RBX #83, RBX #84, RBX #85, RBX #88, RBX #89 and #37259 TRB.

Let me know. If there is something you are looking for let me know as well. Thank you!
I'll get back to you later. Being that my layout and equipment is for sale, there should be no problem. These are just Athearn cars.

I can't belive my luck. For years these Timken tank cars have been so elusive. Then bam they start to pop up! I won yet another one today! Different road number. I think now I need 3 more and that will be it! I will have all tank cars that were ever produced in HO for Timken! Wow!

Here is Athearn Metal Kit #A512 SD Tank Car - TIMKEN ROLLER FREIGHT #TRB 7940...I should have it by Friday this week we shall see.....
