    Went national farm toy show auction on Saturday. Brought this WD-40, no box, missing steering wheel. Made of brass, amazing detail. Never had to pay before to go an auction. Picked up steering wheel from Dakota toys

    That's the 2nd 1/64 W4 I seen in the last 9 days. There was a toy show last weekend in Regina, saw it sitting in case with the 1/16 version. I had no idea that even was made, thanks confirming it. Will have to see if that seller will sell it by itself next month when I see him at the next toy show.

    If anybody has different info on any of who might of made some of the W4's, W9 gassers would be great. Also looking for people that has sales brochures, W30, 600, 650, etc. Thanks for looking.

    The 600/650. The gassers were also made by the sister & brother inlaw of the Pioneer toys. He had passed away, then they took over trying to keep it going. That's the story they told last year of the national farm toy show. Never seen either of them, so had to add to my collection. The Diesels are from ertl.

    The W450 line, again Spec Cast.
  12. My W series collection

    The W400's, 4 of them are from Spec cast. The gas W400 in the front was also made by Peter F, it was begging me to take it home also. haha

    The W30 that were made by Scale models.

    On to the W9 gassers & WD9 series. There seems to be a lot of this series made, from home to factory built.

    The W6 was made by Pionner out eastern Minnesota I'm told. The SW6 was made in Ontario by Bill Ireland of Teeswater Toys. The SW6 t/a was made by Peter Freiheit of Red Wing MN. Its has to been one of the nicest custom built toys I have ever seen. I met Peter at his home this past June. Was just in awe in see his work shop & the beautiful toys he has made. I asked him if he would sell it, he wasn't sure about it. We chatted for couple hrs, he decided it was going to go home. I paid what he asked & I left happy with my buy. Top shelf, gave my Dad a project of making tandem WD9 in 1/64th scale. Found a guy in southern SK that made up the SW6 & the W450 like we have in real life.
