Wonder how this one compares with the Thunder Model kit which had optional wooden planking; the Tiger would probably need transport tracks in any region having double tracking or narrow tunnels.

These look awesome. Where can they be purchased in the States?

I think you will find Thunder's kit is the SSyl 4 axle not the SSyms 6 axle.

Sabre also do a 4 axle type -

Check out this thread where Robert Jan does a comparison (and does some super detailing of missing parts..)

these railroad cars were used by the german railway after world war two also. Leopard 1 ,M48, M60 and other heavy vehicles until they were replaced by newer rail cars
