aquakiwi;What sort of wagons would have transported canon etc in the civil war and are there any models available?
aquakiwi;Thank you traction fan, Yes I meant Freight cars, I'm looking for a suitable freight car. I don't know a lot about the Civil War........I'm a Scott been living in New Zealand for 50 years, LOL
Never mind; I got the reply " I have a car that has two field pieces on it, they were convention items from the Train Collectors Association, I think from the 1980's. They are O gauge. I found it at a train collectors show. They also had a flat with cotton bails and a passenger car. "My brother doesn't model-railroad much anymore, but he's into (ahem) "1860's heritage" stuff. I know he has a period-specific train and special ordered a flatbed with two cannons on it. I'll ask him about it.
You must mean The Dictator. BTSRR.com has it, even with the funky car. I put it on a regular flatcar so it can chase the General. The flatcar and box car are also BTSRR. I think Mantua makes some cars of that era also.
