I don't know if you are on Facebook, but there are several O Gauge/Scale sales groups there.
You might try Mercari, l have sold both O & G scale trains there.
IF all else fails, the Evil Bayou hunt....

Happy Rails!

Hello & Welcome to the Forum.

l will have to dig through boxes, but l believe l have the cars you are looking for.
l will try to get into the storage area tomorrow and see what l can find.

Hello & Welcome to the Forum!
Train Larry gave you good advice, the only thing l can add is to check out the SCARM Track Planning Software provided by Forum Member "Mixy".

Happy Rails!

Hello & Welcome to the Forum, Mike!
It's not often we encounter FineScale Trains and it's nice to see your pic's & video's.
l hope you'll keep us updated with your layout.
l like seeing your Large Scale Trains too, that's one we also have in common.

Happy Rails!


A note on the MPC era whisteling tenders.
It is wise to replace the insulating foam underneath the sound board in the tender.
Because of aging the foam will deteriorate and allow the board to short out on the frame.
This can be the cause of non working whisteling tenders.
I cut a piece from an egg carton top to replace the worn out foam in the one l had, it worked perfectly.

Happy Rails!

Hello & Welcome to the Forum!
Your MPC era Berkshire would have been paired with a Lionel 736W whisteling tender.
Earlier Berkshires were paired with a Lionel 2046W whisteling tender.
I imagine either would be just fine, unless you are a rivet counter.

As for replacement roadname, you will have better luck finding decals rather than silk screening.

Hope this helps.

Happy Rails!

Hello & Welcome to thd Forum!
.It appears tfhat at some point the wheel(s) was/were replaced, probably due to zinc pest.
If you're happy running as is, no problem.
lf you want you want all the same wheels, Forum member Bill Hennings probably has replacement wheels in stock.  Hennings Trains...

Funny, sitting here listening to the tv and reading online how people are having to come up with things to do while self quarantining.
All those who laughed at us for sequestering ourselves away with our trains didn't know we were readying for these days of quarantine...
We might as well play with our trains and if we have an extra one, maybe pass it on to someone who doesn't.
This is a good time to pass on the joy of hearing the wheels go clickity clack as the train goes roundy round.
Be safe, drink lots of water, take vitamin C and eat as best you can and play with your trains!

Happy Rails!

Hello & Welcome to the Forum!

Very Nice! I love seeing folks in the hobby using technology to enhance their experience.
The use of 3-D printers comes at a time when the hobbyist could use the ability to create items for their trains, layouts etc.
l love seeing the locomotives in various guages that are being created.
Being one who enjoys Whimsey in his trains, l could think of many things l could created with that machine.
Thanks for Sharing!
Happy Rails!

UK Lionel

what l remember about usng 50 cycle on a 60 cycle motor, it doesn't spin as fast. l remember trying to run a turntable on 50 cyle power but the speed was not correct.   We would purchase converters that would transform 220v/50cycle into 120v/60cycle to run stateside electronics in europe through the PX/BX. if you know any US GI's stationed over there, have them pick one up for you.

Hello & Welcome to the Forum!

Sadly you find yourself in a position that many do when a relative passes and leaves a train collection behind.
Here is a link created by Mr Muffins Trains to help those seeking buyers for collections.

Keep in mind you won't rceive top dollar/auction/retail prices unless you take the time to sell each piece individually/privately.

Happy Rails!
