      Dear Ed,

      I found the relevant information on snow plow and cow catcher in scale Z.
      In an advertisement of ASPEN MODEL INC., http://www.Aspenmodel.com or e-mail
      Postmaster@..., I found WESTMODEL Oldtime Snow Plow for steam
      locomotives (Cat. No. 40033) and WESTMODEL Old time cow catcher for steam
      locomotives (Cat. No. 40034) at about DM 13,- each.
