    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

    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.

    Verified the cars are all Intermountain but PWRS didn’t have any idea of whether it was one of their special sets.
    Oh well, will keep searching to figure out what it is worth....32 Intermountain grain cars. Seems like they go for $15-20 apiece new.

    I donít think it was a special set. I had a box just like that and it came from another vendor, separate from the cars. The cars probably came in jewel cases. The big box was a great way to store and transport the set.

    What Karl said, I can't remember who had the boxes, or who picked them up. There was a guy in one of the Facebook groups who said he got the dies and was doing them, however not sure whatever happened to that.

    The originals had different boxes, one for Amtrak Passenger, which was designed for Superliners. Another grain, which is what I believe these are.

    Agree with the last two: I have a similar box for autoracks, and I've seen here in Oklahoma a box marked for unit tankers... possibly a coal one as well.

    The box was made by High Iron who I think went out of business. Did the boxes you reference come with a high gloss print on it? That could explain why I can’t find anything. I confirmed the cars came from Two PWRS special buys.

    Thanks
