Now, if anyone wants to do me a favor…

Precisin Scale doesn’t have directions for the kit (it was never relased, the parts fit a bit roughly, it’s a craftsman kit, not a
shake-the-box). What I wuld like is if someone has a copy of “The Rainbow Route” by Sloan(e). Please contact me if you could Xerox
pictures of this railbus in the book, nd send me a copy.

Update:
Just got my order from Train & Trooper. Total price under $ 70; $ 7.25 less if you don’t need the Buick engine and broom.

If you remember this was all the parts from Precision Scale to make a HOn3/30 Casey Jones railbus. Besides the parts listcd earlier, you will need a
small motor and a small NWSL gearbox, part 207-6.
