    Default Canadian Grain Train Set

    I was looking for some help in identifying this set of Canadian grain train cars. Looks like 32 hoppers which would be an awesome unit train for my CP and CN power.

    who made this set? Was it a PWRS special offering? Micro-train cars?

    Anyone know what it sells for and if it is available?

    thanks in advance

    I couldn't find them , but I sent a message to Egatco on Ebay , if he doesn't know and Spookshow Mark doesn't know , then who knows.

    Moose tried searching Trovestar but had no luck; perhaps wasn't using right search words, but more likely not yet in their database...

    I don't have a clue, but if I had to guess I'd say PWRS. That seems to be the kind of thing they'd do.

    Thanks everyone - I sent a note to pwrs to see if they had any details on it. I searched for it online a number of different ways without luck.

    PWRS used Intermountain cars. Not sure about this set. Can you post other photos of the box, etc?

    PWRS also sells Canadian hoppers made by NARC. Can't tell from the picture if they're those or IMRC.

    Thanks everyone for the help. I’ve got this set with all my n scale equipment in storage because of a move - in one of 13 large crates so I guess i’ll Have my work cut out for me in finding it to figure out what it is. Will post whatever I find.
    thanks!
