The second and third sets are pretty clearly European kit. A purist would argue the stack on the engine in the first set is more 1880s than 1860s, but whatever. It's a 4-4-0.

Yes, the 4-4-0 "American" engine and cars are perfect (from a wargaming perspective) for ACW and Wild West use.

The European stuff actually works fine – IF you are doing a Spaghetti Western game!

A 19th century American train enthusiast would have problems with these. For most wargame purposes the 4-4-0 would probably be adequate for the ACW or the Wild West. The cars though as built are all too European to pass for something you'd find in the U.S. It might be possible to make changes which would make them look more American. Also the passenger car at the top is closer to post ACW designs.

For my 1870 New Mexico Wild/Weird West setting, the first one would be "close enough."

Happy for that my friend!.

let's see. The engine and passenger car from set 1. I would modify the stack of the engines and maybe repaint the engine to make it look more period. Ditch the caboose, The design just came about during the civil war, but was really post-war.
