Question regarding Rapido CNJ passenger coaches...

Postby BigDell » Fri Apr 15, 2016 5:25 pm

Since this set of CNJ coaches is now impossible to find and no one seems to be making any on the horizon (and it's SO difficult to find any latter-day CNJ/NJDOT passenger cars) can anyone tell me what type of car these are? Does Walthers or Rapido make something in another road name of the same or at least similar type? I'm going to make a set of my own so that my older NJT and latter CNJ locos have something to pull besides the very old clerestory coaches.
ANY help is much appreciated!
