Is it really a 95XT? The only 1/16th I have ever seen was the 90XT and now the 450.

This is where I store my collectables, got into when I got big in to the HO scale (1:87) model railroad I built in my bedroom.

Display case along with the heavy collection of Canadian Pacific locomotives and on the top is the heavy equipment:

This was a custom build, I think it was a Liebherr 974 excavator, so I mounted in on a shortened flat car for the MOW train I was building:

My bedroom only measures 7 x 10 feet, so a nice back drop had to be the wall, I wanted as much room for the layout as possible.

Kreft go to http://www.dhsdiecast.com/index.cfm
and look under Norscot, they have the 297C, 272C as well as the 226B and 247B
Is it really a 95XT? The only 1/16th I have ever seen was the 90XT and now the 450.ksss, I think you're right that it is the 90XT and not the 95XT.

O alright, its not really that detailed, the cab is looks akward. Actually it is some what detailed, I'd love to see it look like the real thing, but what can you expect for a 1:50 scale model. I'll try and snap some shots of the inside of the cab of my 297C to show that it does have some detail.
