Nellie Inspection Car

3 3/4" Scale Track inspection cars, crew transports, mail delivery Trolley Cars

Nellie Inspection Car

Many small railroads had need for special, self-powered, rail vehicles. Track inspection cars, crew transports, mail and message delivery were essential jobs, but didn’t justify great expenditures for purpose-built units. Hence, many curious and whimsical units were created from discarded rail cars and automotive components. Our Nellie, Shady Lady, and Prospector represent the best of these unique oddities.

Whether you want to check your existing right-of-way or your new RMI Track System, you need a narrow- gauge Inspection Car. These cars are truly unique, rugged and useful, featuring our all-steel-and-rivet frame construction with real hardwood planking. Units may be towed or self-propelled, the latter capable of pulling several additional riding or freight cars.
