Latest Additions

Arriving soon from The Coach Yard are the following two projects:

Both projects will be delivered as full sets, an add-on set, and a variety of individual cars.  The full trains will have a combination of lightweight and heavyweight cars.  The pickup notices have been received, so we hope to have these in hand in the next few weeks.

North Bank Lines has delivered the GN O-1 steam engines,  They have been well received.  We still have in stock an auxiliary tender and a Green boiler special version.

As previously reported, NBL has canceled all of the outstanding, previously announced projects.  If you had reservations with BPL, those have been removed.  North Bank has indicated they are considering a new project of steel cabooses for BN, NP and SP&S.  we will post follow up information as it becomes available.

Glacier Park Models has finalized and announced a project listing for T-1 4-4-4-4 steam engines, one of the very unique steam projects put in action by Pennsylvania RR.  There are 6 different models to be produced, each providing a variation on the changes these engines exhibited over their short working lives.  Engines will come from the factory with Tsunami II DCC and sound installed.  Current delivery schedule is end of the year.  Check the descriptions and photos and let us know which you would like to add to your collection or layout!

Division Point has just announced that they will be picking up 3 of the projects from the Precision Scale catalog (we will help you with updated reservations once we have the new model specifications.)  From DP:

The Seaboard Airline P-1 streamlined Pacific, the Frisco 4-8-2 Mountain, and the RF&P Berkshire (which will now include the Pierre Marquette, and either the early C&O or the C&NW Berks). I had announced these Berks many years ago and never got the reservations to build them back when we had to do 200 models of each! I am the “Berkshire King” as it were, for doing 6 or so various Berks for various roads in the past. These 3 were never in the pile because they are slightly smaller than the NKP or NYC models. I have to get into my research again, but I don’t believe any of them have been done before.
The SAL P-1 was used to haul the “Orange Blossom Special” between the Left and Right coast of FL after the “E’s” were cut off. They had 2 engines streamlined for this service, and we’ll do both.
Don’t know too much about the Frisco engines, except that he had listed 7 versions…we’ll do 2 or maybe 3 including the semi streamlined version.

Inside of New York City's Grand Central Terminal is a secret basement.  While virtually unknown, it serves an important and vital function.    
Part of the fun in models is understanding the construction.  This also applies to the real world.  It is fascinating and a good lesson to see how the prototype rail industry controls and builds its environment.  Here is an example of trackwork in the urban environment of San...
