American Electric Glamour
My new American HO project starts here...
... with the acquisition of a Chicago North Shore & Milwaukee Electroliner set from Con-Cor Models.
For me these passenger car sets epitomize the age of the American streamliner, standing alongside other beautiful trains of the time, like for instance the Southern Pacific Coast Daylight.
As you can see the four car set is articulated and the intervening cars pivot around one truck that they share their ride on.
This was an impulsive eBay purchase that has led me back to American modelling and acquiring some second hand Suydam North Shore interurbans as well. I will post pictures of them in due course. Just thought I would tease things out a bit first.
