They fit on N-Scale track properly, but they don't really work, as the couplers are fixed, and aren't spring-loaded like most "real" N-Scale couplers.

Hey Busss, I would get a set like that (or battery powered) every Christmas when I was a little kid, up until about age 6. Good times!

It’s really cool to see the SCL car in that set. The SCL and I grew up together, but you seldom see SCL represented in train sets of any ilk, probably because it wasn’t very interesting visually.

'atsa beauty!!

This, under the "Train Sets We'd Like to See" Department.



I think these are LL. The AHM ones with the added on roof walks were going for $40 a smack
last time I looked, unboxed, if you could find them. These much cheaper, but satisfy my sweet
tooth.

Those are either Marx or Model Power, Chops. The tooling was originally Marx, later used by Model Power.
