A Passenger Train is Born !

Greetings Blog Followers,

This past week saw the addition of some new passenger cars from Walther's.
1. B60 Baggage Car / Penn Central / Green
2. Baggage Car / Penn Central / Silver / Corrugated sides
3. Baggage Dormitory Car / Penn Central / Silver / Corrugated Sides
4. 44 Seat Coach / New York Central / Two Tone Gray
5. 10-6 Sleeper / Penn Central / Green
6. 10-6 Sleeper / Penn Central / Green
These cars will be added to previously owned Walther's cars
7. 4-4-2 Sleeper / New York Central / Two Tone Gray
8. B60 Baggage Car / Pennsylvania / Tuscan

The eight cars make up a standard length train for the layout and will be mostly powered by an E8A.
All cars came equipped with metal wheels and knuckle couplers. The trucks are also metal and the manufacturer directs a drop of oil be added to each axle end prior to use. All cars are extremely free rolling and handle the 24" curves on the layout.
