Here's some of the links I've been able to collect. This is a list of SN3/2 manufacturers:

http://www.trainweb.org/crocon/snarrow.html

This is Rio Grande Models Sn3 page. The Sn3 tool car that I built for the last model challenge came from here:

http://www.riograndemodels.com/S.htm

And then there's PBL:

http://www.p-b-l.com/

Also, Keith Wiseman of Wiseman Model Services has the old Triangle Models Sn3 line. His Sn3 kits and parts are listed on eBay and can be accessed through his website here:

If you're looking for Sn3 loco kits, you may want to check out Rail Master:

And B.T.S., too, for some rolling stock and structure kits:

But this is a really good one...Backwoods Miniatures:

I have arranged a meeting with a few of my mates, Barry Pate, Paul Dundas, Graham Meyer ( and maybe Alan Rocket ) at the home of Bill Black on July 12th. I will update photos regarding his Sn3 layout. Spoke to Bill the other day and has been completing a number of kits.

regards

Mario

Right out of the paint shop! Those interior boards sure do get beaten up, ya know? Next comes decals, flat coat, and weathering.

Nice work on the gondola, Russ. Do you plan to add some peeling paint effect to the sides? Harry Brunk's pictures of coal cars - as he called them - in his long series "Up Clear Creek on the narrow gauge" in the Gazette showed quite a lot of peeling (much more than paint...).
Russ, what's your philosophy about this thread? Should we post all our Sn3 material there or have separate threads for each subject?

This is the Sn3 place for now, so post 'em if ya got 'em! This car won't be a peeled-paint job, just a dusty one.

Thanks for posting the latest progress on the gon. Looks great and the beaten up interior boards add the right touch.

Thanks for the comments, Guys, I really appreciate it. The decals make it look like something now. Unfortunately, the data decals that came with the kit fell apart in water, so I'll have to get a decal set for this type car and finish it up another time.

Great job. Are you going to rust up the trucks and wheels? I can see that I am going to soon have to break out my kit and give it a shot. Thanks for starting this forum.

Let me add my voice to KP's suggestion, Russ. With rust on wheels and trucks, it's gonna be a perfect model.
