MODEL INTERURBANS, STREETCARS & SELF PROPELLED PASSENGERS
Cannonball Car Shops (#197-)manufacture a popular injection molded styrene GE Steeple Cab body kit in HO and a variety of etched brass kits and parts (in several scales) in the LTD Series (#772.2). Made in USA
East Gary Car Co. (#48- ) manufactures the former Indianapolis Car Co. styrene body components for O scale “wooden” passenger cars and interurbans as well as a variety of cast metal detail parts and select large scale trucks and detail parts for freight cars. EGC detail and ½” Scale parts are special order items and are made to order—allow 3-5 weeks for delivery. MRRW Maintains a stock of the former ICC styrene body parts. Made in USA
Cannonball’s LTD Series (#772.2-) offers a wide variety of etched brass parts for the traction scratch builder in O, S and HO scales. Most of these parts are available in body kits and part groupings for specific construction projects. We include the LTD Brill 55 motorcar on this page though it was a gasoline powered car. LTD parts are designed in HO scale and retooled into other scales (O, S, 1/20.3 F-G, N) when sufficient reservations justify the retooling. LTD items already tooled/produced in other scales have sku numbers: #772-160- N scale; #772.2-48- O scale; #772.2-64- S Scale; #772.2-20- F scale 1/20.3; #772.2-24- half-inch scale. Cannonball LTD brass body kits are designed for assembly using simple hand tools and either ACC glue or solder. They are undecorated and require your addition of glazing, poles, motors, trucks and details. We design for easy assembly and ease of retooling into other scales. After introduction of new kits in HO your reservations will determine what other scales can be offered.
GRAND RIVER CAR CO Roger Chrysler, respected Canadian traction model railroader offers custom assembled LTD Baldwin Steeple Cabs in O, S and HO scales and LTD Brill 55 motorcars. Purchase of the kit and deposit on construction are required at time of order. As with any custom assembler, a waiting period of weeks and possibly even months should be expected. Prices shown are for a basic BODY assembly. Added truck, pole/pan and detail installation (that you provide), paint and decal will increase price. Assembly is done in Canada and prices are subject to exchange rate fluctuation. Base Price is shown in kit description while DEPOSIT AMOUNT is shown at the “Buy Now” button with balance due upon completion.

MINORITY Scale modelers- Most LTD Series kits can also be retooled into N scale. Because the minimum number of kits to justify the retooling expense would be several dozen we suggest interested groups pool a group order & interest an N scale dealer in an exclusive product made by us for the dealer. This can also be done to reach required volume in O, S or 1/20.3 or 1/24 scales.
Additional suitable parts for O & S Modelers are on PASSENGER CAR page

The GE Steeple Cab shown was built and super detailed using AMB detail products by John Hitzeman. The AMB detail items and truck frames are sold direct only by American Model Builders.
Cannonball Car Shop’s injection molded styrene HO GE Steeple Cab has a well earned reputation. It is highly detailed, easily assembled and the parts fit. It was designed to utilize Bachmann’s original 44 & 70-ton diesel drive (with motor attached to trucks) that has since been discontinued and is still found at train shows. We’ve seen them with Black Beetle trucks (by Hollywood Foundry of Australia) and other drives. The kit is a basic body for you to detail as desired. It is shown here with a super- detail kit made and only sold by AMB (American Model Builders, St. Louis). Both early arched window and later rectangular window sides are included in our styrene body kit.

The O,S and F scale kits have bolster mounts that can be positioned to suit your trucks. 33 inch wheeled PCC trucks are suggested.

A wooden interurban from central Indiana had the distinction of being the last former Indiana Railroad car to run on the last former Indiana Railroad [operated- a technicality] line. As Indiana Service freight motor #817 she ran north from Fort Wayne serving gravel pits and pulling coal from NYC interchange to the ISC power plant and the state school for mentally handicapped in Ft Wayne. And… she served hops to the Centlivre brewery where Nickle Plate Beer was brewed. A familiar sight on State and Spy Run street trackage until 1954, she was last painted in the brownish Tuscan red and light “sandy” cream paint scheme used on Fort Wayne transit vehicles.
She had unique traction character — the 817 was strictly home-made and no drawings are known to have surfaced. After extensive study, we offer a parts collection with assembly suggestions in HO that is not a kit. Many parts need fitting or extensive modification and some are even possible “stand-ins.” Parts included for experienced model builders (in addition to our decals and brass etchings) are from Tichy and Bethlehem Car with Evergreen scribed siding. (Poles not included) The suggestions are not step-by-step instructions.

The Class B freight motor “saved” the sprawling central Illinois road when interurbans began their decline. It enabled transformation into a major freight handler serving St. Louis. The LTD series kit is designed for assembly with basic hand tools and super glue or solder. The double etched brass body has holes for Tichy #293-3015 grab irons and wire handrails. We’ve designed to allow either removable roof or removable floor construction (floor recommended) and provided holes for screw mounting both wood roof and brass floor. Bolsters strips are included. A brass bracket for mounting early (truck mounted motor) Bachmann 44 or 70 -ton diesel trucks is available.

These steel passenger coaches were favorites of traction fans as they ran to the Erie lakeshore much later than most interurbans survived. Their unique roof and use of pantographs make them easily recognized too. Powerful, they typically pulled trailers as shown in one of our prototype photos by the late Bill Pepper. Even numbered power cars (trailers were odd numbered) in single digits were 62 footers, the 70 footers were in the teens. Limited edition LTD body kits have double etched brass body parts and milled wood roof. As with all our brass body kits, these are designed for assembly with basic hand tools and modern glues or solder.

Click here for an explanation of our FROG reservation system of LTD Series models and a complete updated status of proposed,
potential and scheduled kits in O,S,HO,N & Large scales.(Including many kits not
shown on this page and an invitation to nominate additional kits).
Others—watch for additions to this list. We are doing engineering studies for design of kits for the Cincinnati curved siders. Unless a large group of folks doing a given city are in the market, we suspect unique city streetcar and trolley coach potential sales are too limited to warrant the engineering and tooling costs—we’d love to do the Ft Wayne city cars –or any that can be supported by sales. Our files contain many. Illinois Terminal and IRR (and predecessors) have enjoyed may imports over the years. We like these lines and would love to do them but selection of appropriate prototypes to obtain required sales volume means groups (formal or informal) need to consider group requests like the S scale folks did to get our Baldwin B&D and troop cars done. That goes for Lake Shore, CNS&M and other roads with wide following, many prototypes and small groups like N tractioneers too.

MRRW’s “Boss Merle” assisted Bill Pepper in building this Grand River freight motor model. They’ve enjoyed RIDING it on Pepper’s nearby outdoor layout for years. Would you be surprised if an HO model appeared in our lineup? This model has about 25,000 rivets, individually installed.
East Penn National Show Report
MRRW proudly debuted two new traction models at the Philadelphia show in May 2013. We also announced five additional HO models coming in 2013 and, based on the advanced reservations reserved, we expect to also introduce the Illinois Terminal Class B Freight motor in O and likely in S scale this year—(assuming advanced reservations continue at the current pace).
SHOWN AT THE SHOW—
Our test sheet model of the HO Illinois Terminal Class B was being constructed by Roger Chrysler [Grand River Models]. Minor revisions to the tooling were completed in June and we expect to release the kit in July. Resin roofs are coming soon for this brass body. Merle is busily updating the instructions. Photos of Roger building this car are posted on the linked Illinois Terminal page of our website. The kit includes bolsters for mounting currently available power trucks. A bracket for mounting the early Bachmann 44/70T powered trucks is also available.
The Indiana Service #817 freight motor BUILT UP was shown. This motor has a unique traction character and may now be ordered either painted & lettered ISC (as shown) or unlettered, painted solid color. The model is supplied powered with Bowser mechanism and has Bowser poles.
ANNOUNCED AT THE SHOW—
Illinois Terminal Class C end platform kits have been engineered and HO test sheets run. This kit, along with the Class B body, allow construction of the classic 4 truck model. Reservations accepted in other scales.
London and Port Stanley steel 62 & 70 foot passenger cars tooling is underway with winter release of these brass bodied, wood roofed HO body kits.
C&LE Steel Cincinnati built Freight Motor tooling is nearly completed with fall release of the kit in HO expected. Reservations are accepted in other scales as well. These later saw service on Illinois Terminal and went to California
PORTABLE SUBSTATION inspired by 2 C&LE prototypes with their exposed, flat car mounted transformers and cabin will be offered as an HO built up by Grand River Car Shop. This eye catching model belongs on every interurban layout.
Other notes of interest- we were not surprised by the large number of folks purchasing the large Center Line brick sheets (especially in O scale). You need to see them to believe their quality. We showed the HOMETOWN Corner Drug Store pre release, production model. Additional reservations and interest were shown in the “Possible Future Kits” (listed on our FUTURE PRODUCTS page. New nominations will soon be added to that listing too.
We had a registration box for a drawing to give away one of our HO GE Steeple Cab kits. W.Jay Wanczyk of Pompton Plains, NJ should be watching his mail box for its arrival shortly. We should have had an award for the person who checked back most often or watched most carefully while Roger built the Illinois Terminal B. The winner would have been Franklin Graham. (He had a lot of completion). You’ll see him in the posted pictures of the IT construction progress.
Volkmar Meier (from Paris, France) was in the booth directly behind us. That helped accelerate our research into 3D printing. We’ll just say at this point that one of our own CAD men has some industrial experience (and software) in this area and that we have focused on particular traction models most appropriate for the technology and our continued engineering efforts. We will announce, too, that we have made arrangements to begin listing certain Q Car products—those directly applicable to our own kits.
Here is Boss Merle’s wife Bea- at our table showing HOMETOWN KITS, CENTERLINE BUILDING SHEETS, LaBelle KITS and traction books from our YARDSALE page.
Merle is shown here with our traction kits. Sharp eyes will also spot the Clouser North Shore body from his own collection that was sold by silent auction.
And the star of our show, Roger Chrysler, showing folks that kit building is alive and well as they (and he) first saw our Illinois Terminal Class B body kit.

WE RECEIVED A NOTICE OF PRICE INCREASES ON ETCHED BRASS FROM OUR CONTRACTOR IN CALIFORNIA JAN 11, 2013. THERE HAVE BEEN TWO PREVIOUS ETCHING INCREASES (as well as freight from CA) DURING 2012. WE ABSORBED THE FIRST AND MADE NOMINAL INCREASES ON A HANDFUL OF KITS WITH THE SECOND. PRICES ON ADVANCED RESERVATIONS ARE GUARANTEED. WE EXPECT MANY KITS TO INCREASE IN FEB-MARCH 2013.
“There will be a price increase coming, just as soon as I can shake the accounting mountain I am working on. Existing prices will apply to the orders we have on hand, but there will be little to no notice once I get new pricing calculated. We have had several supplier price increases in the past 24 months or so since I reviewed pricing last. Other pricing pressures have been mounting especially related to several recent regulatory changes. Some of these changes we are not only experiencing directly, but each of our suppliers have had similar impacts that are affecting the prices we pay them. It is a sad circumstance that government officials don’t seem to understand, but this impact is a growing factor in manufacturing life. Sorry to be the messenger.”
