New to O Gauge/Scale Modelling and need some Info. : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

Hey folks!

As the Subject line says, I have some questions about O gauge/scale.

I recently got back into modelling, but in O vice HO. The only problem I see is that there's not too much available for either SAL or ACL (SAL's my favorite).

Could any of you that model in O please give me some idea of what is or was available. I currently have a MTH SAL RS-3, 2 boxcars, and a hopper.

Bob, Well, lets see. I presume the question is what's available in O scale that is specifically painted and lettered for SAL. If so, I think you are going to have a tough time finding much. Occasionally there are cars available on ebay for SAL and/or ACL. Mostly freight equipment. Now, if you can paint and decal, this opens up many new avenues. Champ, Microscale offer decals and Greg Komar, down in Tampa, rub-ons. Weaver, recently offered the 'American Flyer' car (coach) that could be repainted for SAL. I'm certain others reading this will be able to add to the list of suppliers. Please don't hesitate to email me directly if I can be of further assistance. Ron
