Nice!

Some questions:

Are they actual size 3-1/2 inch gauge, or are they modeled after a prototype that is 3-1/2 foot gauge?

The confusion is because you say that they are 1-3/4" scale.

Is the price per pair or each? Web site is not clear. It refers to the weight per pair, but doesn't say if the pricing is per pair.

Steve, I think you will find that they are models of a Maine 2’ gauge truck to run on 3 - 1/2” gauge tracks.

1.75"/foot scale for two foot gauge prototype is 3.5" gauge. A nice size model in my opinion.

To the OP, not clear from your ad, is price mentioned per pair of trucks (ie one car) or per truck?

Price per pair, shipping included. Yes, they are Maine 2 foot prototypes.

Thanks!

A recent photo studio shoot gave me some lovely pictures to share. Please note, the order window will be closed shortly, as I am reaching my quota.
