RE: Making own rollong stock

It's my opinion that, no matter how it turns out, your scratchbuilt rolling stock will still have more class and project more atmosphere than the finest production model. That's because the materials and tools you will use give a really different visual result, and you can see the difference, and it says "built by a modeler, not bought". I'd say you should have a go at it.

As for putting wheels under them: start with four-wheel stock and make the axle journals from square styrene (or brass) tubing. Do you have plans? Can you find them, if not?
