Observation IC 3305 is a very close (exact?) match to the CNW 7200/7201

  • Replace three axle trucks with two axle trucks
  • Remove marker lamps
  • Flatten out the rear door frame (there was no door on the CNW's)
  • Doorway needed for front vestibule
  • Slightly different window pattern

Lounge IC 4200 similar to CNW 7900

  • Only need door on right side
  • Replace three axle trucks with two axle trucks
Coaches are almost exact matches
  • Slightly different window pattern 
Baggage cars... nothing close in IC pack
  • Freeware UP bag car is closest match and already has two axle trucks
Diners IC 4106 is close to CNW 6956-6959 (ACF 48 seat)
  • Replace three axle trucks with two axle trucks
  • Slightly different window pattern

  • "Northern" 16-3-1 is similar MILW 16-4 from Hiawatha Set
