Silver City Models offers On30 Models

Recently I saw some On30 items from Silver City Models for sale on eBay. I ordered kits for a D&RGW 1872 17' 4 wheel flat car and a D&RGW 1872 17' 4 wheel gondola car. They just arrived so I have not had a chance to assemble them yet. But they are nice looking kits made up of a combination of resin castings, laser cut items, wheelsets and additional detail items.

Along with my kits, the proprietor included a list of available kits. For O/On3/On30, they include:

  • On3/On30 D&RGW 1872 12' 4 wheel box car kit - $36
  • On3/On30 D&RGW 1872 14' 4 wheel flat car kit - $24
  • On3/On30 D&RGW 1872 17' 4 wheel flat car kit - $24
  • On3/On30 D&RGW 1872 17' 4 wheel gondola car kit - $26
  • On3/On30 D&RGW 1872 14' 4 wheel gondola car kit - $26
  • On3/On30 Kilgore Log Loader kit - $49.95
  • O/On30 Steam Boiler/Fuel Tank kit - $39.95
