Needing improved performance from their H-7 class Mikados, New York Central and Lima, in 1922, created the H-10 class engines. A larger firebox grate, a feedwater heater, larger cylinders, lightweight rods, and a booster created an engine that could both out-pull and out-run the H-7. Division Point has used the latest in production techniques to produce its own version of superior H-10 2-8-2s.
The Coach Yard has sent out a new set of project announcements. We expect to be discussing those at the NMRA convention. Until then, here is a list for you to preview:
There are 2 new project announcements from Precision Scale:
- Milw Road EF and EP Boxcabs - The list of models for this project is quite extensive. Milw Road had a number of these units and ran them in a variety of groupings. The model listings provide for all of the major classes as original model sets. There are also a number of individual units that can be purchased and numbered for you to create a specific electric set that suits your needs.
- SP Leslie Rotary Snow plows
Here is large power for the west coast - several DD40AX units along with a DD35 A/B set. NOTE: The few pieces left have been re-priced to move quickly.
For those who model north of the border, here is a small set of cabooses. Most are recent Overland pieces with little to no run time.
