    • Hi Michael,

      You didn’t mention scale, but Rapido Trains made a ready-to-run version of coaches, baggage cars, steam generators and now the FP9s in the more recent (1992-2010) paint scheme.

      For older schemes you won’t really find anything ready to run, but decals are available from Black Cat. See the decals link on my Resources page on this blog.
