G Scale models of Seaboard locomotives & caboose

greenspun.com : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

Looking for info on where I might find G Scale versions of Seaboard caboose, diesel locomotives, and steam locomotives.

The ACL NW2 in G Scale is numbered 605, the GP7 is nr 234, and USA Trains has just come out with an ACL F3 numbered 346. All are purple and silver. A couple of cabooses are out in G Scale for ACL which are painted purple and silver. No RTR psg cars are avail for ACL or SAL in G Scale, but a few out of scale ACL boxcars are avail.mw

There is very-little available in SAL RTR G-scale equipment. Aristocraft has a SAL OBS boxcar and not too long ago did a 4-pak of small covered hoppers (3 of the 4 paint schemens were incorrect). No RTR loco's are available, althought I have heard USA might do either their NW-2 or GP7/9 in SAL...but, don't hold your breath. There are a number of good loco's out there, but you'll need to paint and decal them yourself. A G-scale wide-vision caboose has been announced (USA or Aristo, can't remember which) but alas, no SAL. USA does a NW-2 and GP-7 for ACL..... Nothing correct in steam.

Good Luck,
