Without Rolling Stock a Railroad goes nowhere, except like mine around in a dog-bone circle. Commodities need to move and we need something to pull behind our expensive engines. At first I had the Bachmann cars, still have some of them. They were rolling all over the layout. As the new MR&L took over a new batch of rolling stock was needed and obtained. The San Juan Car Co fit the bill but not the pocket book. I bought almost a whole tax returns worth one year, and have 10 cars operating with 34 more in a box waiting to be built.
I have a Loco Painters Rotary snow plow with about 3,000 casting to put together some day also.
I am going to show you here several kinds of the rolling stock that the MR&L has in their inventory. These are what were formerly the cars of the D&RGW, which was acquired by the MR&L.
