  1. Hi I am looking for an HO model of the private car “Agawa” # 550 . Would you know where I could find one and other Algoma Central vintage “Snow Train” locomotives and cars.

    • There’s not really any model out there but if you wanted to have a car custom painted Black Cat Decals has a set of ACR passenger car lettering that will cover anything including the Agawa or Michipicoten private cars.
