Hi Everyone

I'm hoping people out there can help me. I recently purchased a Vintage Micro-Train Hudson Steam Locomotive. I'm in search of part's to restore it. It is listed as HOO gauge, it is slightly larger then N scale. So it is often mistaken as N scale. I know parts are out there but very hard to find. Im hoping someone out there may be able to help me find these parts.

Unusual indeed, manufactured by Carl-Eric Nordstrand in Stockholm between about 1947 and 1950. Scale 1:150, gauge 10 millimeter. Very few kits and models sold in Sweden and USA. When the manufacturing quit, all spares and bits were sold to Kadee who intended to take up the production but then N-scale were on the rise and the project shut down.

 

Carl-Eric Nordstrand also used the brand name 'Casey Jones', I don't know if that helps anything...

 

There's a few Swedish collectors but it's an unusual model even here. You could try this forum and see if they can help you in the right direction. Most swedes communicate easily in English.
