I was in covington kentucky for a week visiting with my father and aunt. she's passing away with cancer. anways, i decided to check the local craigslist for cincinatti ohio and found a aristocraft 0-4-0 jack daniels set for 95 bucks. said it had a broken step and was missing a door... well i bought the set and the a door for 1 of the passenger cars is missing, and the step is missing as well. but they screw in. so it's not really broken, i just gotta order new ones. it's also missing the handrails that go above the cab. over all it's in great shape and i really like it. i'd like to remove the little coal switcher cab piece and add a tender, but i'm not gonna pay 120 for a tender.


if you would like pictures, i'll post them. it's up to you guys, i haven't seen many people post in the G guage part of this forum.

yes i searched ebay, i can't find what i need on there. as far as the tenders go, i found tenders with sound but they are 120. i'm not spending that much.

as far as the parts go, the parts are on aristo's website in there exploded view and i can pick up the step, door, and both handrails for prob. under 20 bucks which i'm ok with.




to the guy that wants pics, i'll post some asap. i just wasn't sure if there would be interest.

Yes I agree, though nice it looks half dressed without the tender.
I wonder why it wasn't with the Loco?

You going to run that indoors or out in the garden?

Be nice to add some passengers to the cars.:D:thumbsup:

not setting it up anywhere atm. just put it in my room next to my other g guage set. aristocraft offers there set with a little piece of plastic that simulates a coal load on the rear of the engine or the same engine with a tender. the little rear switcher cab piece is removable. i dunno what it's called. anyways, the jack daniels set from what i can tell was only offered this way, never with a tender.

i dunno if you have the north star express or not, but that is one of my other g guage sets however i have the passenger set, i guess it's kinda rare from my point of view, i paid 25 bucks for mine. i can't find it anywhere else, it's a beautiful set.

this isn't my picture, but the passenger set in the first picture.

Very Nice Buy!!!!
I'd hold out for a tender! I bet you ca snag one on eBay!


I guess patience paid off, I found a 0-4-0 rc cola engine and tender for 68 (buy it now) bucks. I'm prob. going to try painting the tender to match the jack daniels engine.
