I don't get any Kalmbach newsletters, purposely, so eveyone may already know this.  There is a free, downloadable pdf on circus trains.  I found it in a pop up windows on the Rochelle webcam

I have the complete Micro Trains Ringling Brothers red train, plus a few additional cars.  It is a 17 car train.  Looks good running around the layout.

I caught the Ringling Bros train unloading in Baltimore.  The sight of an elephant coming out of a rail car is impressive.  The pictures are somewhere in two very large boxes of pictures. 

This will have to do, at 3:20

A few days ago there was a boat load of N-Scale MTL Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus cars on eBay.  The one with the mean-looking Tiger in the center was my favorite.  I didn't feel enough richness in my blood to buy them at $30 plus a piece because I'm not rich.  Today I looked for them and could only find one....  they are just gone.  I wish I would have bought the mean-looking Tiger one.  Snooze you lose againTongue Tied

I got all the bachman circus train cars and the older the great circus train.  I know you can still get the bachmann train cars. Bachmann actually release a two new car to that set.  I do hope in near future someone would make another circus train set.
