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.



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.


What's New

North Bank lines has release flyers for the following 2 projects:

Follow the links for specific model options and let us know which you would like to reserve.


Union Terminal Imports has  provided a list of the DODX cabooses they are planning to produce.  The project will also have a special collection model available which will have all 6 cabooses in a single presentation package.


We have previously reported that North Bank Lines was canceling all of their outstanding projects.  After some back and forth, there is some clarification.  NBL is going to re-issue project announcements to tighten the focus of project work.  We will follow up when the new listings are provided, but you can expect the following (per NBL): flyers for the SP P-12 project and the SP TW-2, -3 and -6 projects but the number of locomotives will decrease.  As for the SP AM-2 class, that is a project I have been planning for some time but have not yet announced.  The same is true for the GE 70-tonner project.  New flyers for all of these project will eventually be forthcoming.  However, the next flyer I plan to send will announce the NP, SP&S and BN high and low cupola steel caboose.  I want to use this project to see how well Boo Rim Precision has got a grip on their production scheduling.

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...
