DSP&P 1:22.6 SCale 16' WayCARS
T
here were no commercially produced models in 1:22 or 1:24 scale that accurately represented the DSP&P waycars. Most available DSP&P models were generic bobber cabooses with the cupola removed. As a result, the windows on all these models are too close to the ends of the car. But I love DSP&P waycars, so I ran them anyway - visitors didn't know the difference.

DSP&P 1:22.6 SCale 26' & 27' Box, Cattle, and Refrigerator CARS
   All cars have plastic bodies, knuckle couplers, and metal wheels. The original models had simulated-metal Murphy roofs. Since this roof did not appear until the early 1900s, I replaced the metal roof with a simulated-wood roof from Bachmann to better represent the 1880s era. All "metal" car parts were detailed in black, as they were on the real cars. See More Photos Of These Box Cars HERE.

DSP&P 1:22.6 SCale 26' Freight CARS (Less accurate and whimsical Models)
Some of these cars were commercially available with DSP&P lettering but most represent car styles, logos, paint schemes, or road numbers that never ran on the DSP&P. Others were custom lettered by eBay vendors, with the same issues as noted above. All were fitted with simulated wood roof, where appropriate, and metal wheels and knuckle couplers. All have been donated or sold from my collection.

DSP&P 1:22.6 SCale Customized Passenger Cars
  
I bought these cars from an eBay vendor who had done a wonderful job customizing three Bachmann kits into reasonable representations of DSP&P combine #4 "Hall's Valley", DSP&P coach #5 "Leadville", and sleeper "South Park". I added the LGB single-door baggage car to the set as it is a good approximation of DSP&P #42. These four cars were donated to DSPPHS - see them on display at the Como Roundhouse, Como CO.

DSP&P 1:22.6 SCale LGB Passenger Cars
  
The silver roofs were painted black, which improved their appearance greatly  I renumbered these cars to give them reasonable DSP&P numbers. This was not one of my most successful projects, as the paint on the car sides was damaged where the old LGB numbers were removed.

One combine and three passenger cars were donated to Breckenridge Historical Alliance. The balance went to RMGRS, Calgary.
