1  Discussion Boards / Plasticville U.S.A. / Union Station Suggestion on: December 22, 2014, 01:39:58 AM

Has the idea ever been kicked around about an add-on kit/built up to the O scale union station consisting only of two or four of the shorter platforms included in the main kit?  This particular building has a modular feature built right in.  Additional platforms would allow the platform to be lengthened to accommodate full trains and would even allow the addition of a second platform, further enhancing its representation as a major terminus.

I'm not too picky about choice of equipment; I'll accept a broader time span than what may have actually been.  I have noticed anachronisms already, namely that the bobber caboose probably didn't exist until at least the 1880s (probably later; I can't find anything on when they were first used).I already have what's left of the Bachmann Old Timer Freight set (that is, the cars but no loco) that I got secondhand many years ago, but the bright paint schemes definitely need to be replaced with duller reds, browns, grays, or blacks.

As far as ready-to-run equipment is concerned, I have noticed that Mantua's equipment is lettered to compliment the Bachmann locos.  I know the coaches are too short for the prototype, but they are at least a short-term option (at the modeler's discretion).

I have been frequenting the Bachmann site for a long time, looking at HO and 3-rail O gauge stuff for some time, so I thought I probably should join the forum here.  I am glad to see that the 19th century coach and combine have been reintroduced recently, and hope to get them soon.  Are there plans to re-release the four freight cars, as well (box, flat, gon, water tank)?  I would love to see all of the 19th century cars released in realistic paint schemes lettered to compliment the 1860's 4-4-0s. So far, the bobber caboose is already lettered for UP and PRR, so there is a head start!
