Small passenger cars


Recommended Posts


Do someone knows where I can find small passenger cara, specially the unpowered ones for Kato Pocket Train (steam)? Specially at eBay.

I want to build a small consist with a steeple cab... but is hard to find small passengers (and shorty ones need to change trucks).


Thanks in advance!

That would be difficult, even on YJA. I would recommend you look into Tomytec's Nostalgic Railway Collection, it features similar coaches or buy early German coaches. Changing the trucks on Shorties is very easy and straightforward.

I was also going to suggest the usual suspects: German two axle coaches, like the Donnerbüchse or earlier.


I just didn't say anything the first time I came around because I looked it up first and I was shocked with the prices of new ones!


This listing on ebay is much more pocket friendly, although I would advise to check the ones with the shorter wheelbase.

I'm afraid the longer Donnerbüchse are too long for Pocket Line curves.

Yes, their prices wouldn't be very wallet friendly if buying from abroad. The best for most German rolling-stock is to visit a model railway fair in Germany or a local model railway shop. Prices are usually much better than on eBay for second-hand models.

I still think the Nostalgic Railway Collection is the best shot.
