To @3rdboxcar and all: Here is my 150-164 coach on a Tomytec TM-21 chassis. It's actually a pretty decent fit, with no modifications, only using two of the plastic frame extenders included. I may use some putty to hold it in place, but overall I am thrilled with the appearance. Couldn't find any more TM-21s on ebay, so just bought two TM-22s (I think) -- same length but slightly shorter trucks -- for two more shells to come. Next up: paint, etc.

@3rdboxcar woo hoo! I would really love that. N scale modelers need a good railroad-roofed car, and the CA&E fleet could lend themselves to a lot of different applications.

@rogerdupuis2 Thanks for your kind comments, one day I suppose a CA&E car is possible, you are not the only person who has asked for one.

Hi - bought one of your cars and will definitely order more - great job! I am also interested in CA&E cars - can you share what program you used to model these? I would like to try to create some CA&E cars myself. Thanks!

@3rdboxcar Alexander, thanks. N scale traction has until recently been so limited, as you know, so body shells of this quality are a breath of fresh air! I'm probably going to model a fictional line around Western New York, where I am from. I know these cars are totally inappropriate, but I had to have one, and I'll just have to make up a story to fit!

Hi @rogerdupuis2 Thanks for your kind comments and the whole CNSM journey started with a few words from a friend "I would really like an Electroliner" So one day the CA&E is possible. Alexander

Hi @3rdboxcar. I Just bought one of these for a freelance interurban project, and I love it. You really have done an amazing job with the craftsmanship on this design. I will post photos once it's primed and painted. Also hoping you might consider other interurban designs in N scale. I've been longing for a good railroad-roof Niles car, such as used on CA&E. Keep up the good work!
