      I never bought any of the same made by LGB, I considered them too expensive for kitbashing. However I acquired eight of these puppies made by Newqida; the price was right and a bit of digging in the "library" resulted in finding just the proto to bash them into. More on that later.

      Best feature, other than the suitable measurements, just four screws to undo for disassembly! Otherwise: you get what you pay for, in this case$20 a pop.

      HJ,
      I purchased eight of the green coaches. Not perfect, but cannot argue with the price.

      HJ, I have two broken ladder/railings on my LGB tankers...Just how close of a match are these? Could they be a source of replacement parts?

      Mark,

      I don't know, I never bought the LGB ones. However from what Jack Barton posted at one time I would thing they're close to identical.
