Latest Additions

Union Terminal has delivered the latest production batch of EMD E7-E9 diesel engines in HO scale. These latest groupings include engines from Southern Pacific and Burlington Northern.   Due to a late cancelation, we have several of each of these prototypes still available.

Coach Yard has sent the pickup notice for the Early 2-8-8-2 steam engines in HO scale. The prototype was originally designed in 1908 by Baldwin for SP which became the MC-1 class. Difficulties with snowsheds lead to the cab forward design of the MC-2 and later classes. This project includes the MC classes (SP, OR&N, UP), AC-2/3s (SP) and Y-1 (N&W).

Models are now in stock!  Pictures are now available from several engines.

Pick up notices have been received from Precision Scale for the Great Northern W-1 Electrics in HO scale. Although few in number on the prototype, these were exceptional work horses for Great Northern. This project provides for several varieties and combinations, as well as additional heater cars, including one for Western Pacific.

Models have been delivered.  The sets are sold out, but a couple of units are still available.

What's New

NOTE: LAST DAY! - I will be ending this offer on Sept 15, get your request in now! - Like you, we're outside, not paying too much attention to the trains at the moment.  This is the perfect time for a SALE!   For an undetermined time we will provide an unknown discount for your purchase.  This will be a sale full of rumor and innuendo.  Just let us know what you would like and make an offer - we might be able to do that, or we might not.  You never know until you try.  (however, no layaways, payment will have to be in full - does not apply to previously reserved or requested models.)

Update 12/28/16:  As of this date, we are informed that there are 3 engines still available from a total production of 75 pieces.  Engines are AC-11 #4252, AC-11 #4274 and AC-12 #4294.
