Prototypical N scale Models
of the Southern Pacific Railroad

This site is a list of all the non-brass kits that produce an exact model of a prototype car. Requirements to make this list:
  1. kit comes out of the box an exact match, with no modification or
  2. dimensions of the kit are an exact match, either needs details added, or details changed (change door or ends).
This is not a kit-bashing page (the model magazines do a great job of explaining how to match the prototype if you have to do more than that in order to create an exact model).

If you would like to add to this list, please contact the host. Thank you.
