Railroading/Motorcar Types


This list is a compilation of information published on websites plus the input of many individuals from their personal collections of cars and literature. Additions and corrections are welcome; send them directly to glenn_butcher@pcisys.net

I've tried to capture a line for each major series, as well as a line for the overall model. I also have lines for special cars, such as narrow-gauge versions, and other extraordinary cases. In the Notes column, you will find "Ref:" entries; these are for websites for which I haven't obtained permission to link yet. If you see your name and I haven't contacted you yet, please feel free to contact me and let me know your druthers. I will be contacting site owners as I find the time.
