MRRHQ Custom Colorado & Southern Early 1900s Mixed Freight & Passenger Set
Colorado has MRRHQ. It also has royal gorges, rivers that carve out grand canyons and our State divides the continent. And today's steam powered scenic railroads. Boy do we have scenic railroads and a whole bunch of railroad history. The West had to be won and, to do that, railroads and some very hard men had to win through Colorado and her mountains. Their stories, and the railroads that they built, are the stuff of legend. It doesn't stop there though. Colorado has also provided the inspiration for modelers the world over. Perhaps the most famous model railroad of all, John Allen's Gorre and Daphetid Railroad, is a case in point.
Enter our MRRHQ Custom Colorado & Southern Early 1900s Mixed Freight & Passenger Set fronted by our incredible one-of-a-kind custom near replica of storied C&S 2-6-0 Mogul #9 pulling 10 uniquely customized C&S freight cars and passenger coaches. Here is your "if you snooze you lose" chance to own our loving homage to a C&S mixed freight/passenger train as it might have appeared serving the mining districts of Colorado in the early 1900's. All aboard for the high country!
Includes Genuine Colorado & Southern Jacket Patch!
Our C&S 2-6-0 Mogul #9 started life as an 84773 C&O Roundhouse/Athearn Mogul. The presumed first owner turned it into his own hand painted unnamed creation which, likely, never ran the rails. We acquired it at an estate sale and, after MANY hours of restoration, repainting, and re-lettering, resuscitated it to it's present incarnation as a near replica of storied C&S 2-6-0 Mogul #9 whose history is well documented.
