Although my town of Calamity hasn't seen a lot of work lately I have been keeping my eye out for good deals on rolling stock for the railroad portion. For those that haven't been following along I have abandoned my original idea of using S Scale, just do to the lack of equipment available and instead I am using On30. It has the right "feel" because of its narrow gauge proportions even though I consider 1/48th scale to be much to big for 28mm miniatures. I have been able to find some pretty good deals on Ebay and over the last month I have been able to pick up a box car and stock car. I would like to get at least 3-4 more box cars and another stock car so I'll keep my eyes peeled. I'm still looking for reasonably priced steam locomotives as well. I may have to bit the bullet on those. In the meantime I have decided that when I get my turn of the century railroad back up and running I'll be re-doing it in On30 rather than HO so everything can serve double duty as my Colorado and Northwestern RR.
Here are the latest acquisitions.
