    Default Pacific Electric in N scale

    Does anyone model PE in N? I use to in HO and would like to do some in N. I need to find kits or brass or something. I belive Western rail craft made some kits but I am not sure and they may be hard to find.

    Does anyone have any for sale?

    Thanks guys!

    (The voices I hear in my head may not be real, but sometimes they come up with a good idea.)

    Have fun.

    I would if there were any serious traction in N. Unfortunately there's very little, even less so for PE.

    You can get some PE shells and streetcar goodies here:

    Some of them can be fitted to Tomyteck drives.

    Eric is building up some more PE units, some Blimps I believe (I don't know nothin' 'bout PE or its "blimps"), Eric is planning to post some pictures of PE1457, PE1261, PE1450.

    All the best,
    Charles

    Is your trolley wire going to be functional? Or just for looks?

    What do you have planned for trolley poles? Will they be something like spring wire or something?

    It sounded like a good idea at the time... too bad the caboose wasn't in on the plan.
