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.

Chesapeake & Ohio run a small number of stylish, streamlined hudson engines, with both yellow and orange painted boilers'.  Precision Scale has produced a small re-run of the exquisite copies they did a few years ago.  These new pieces continue the crispness and precision of the 2007 pieces, but with the addition of secondary lighting features, such as in cab lighting and track lighting.   NOTE: The models have sold out, but we are taking requests for a few possible overrun pieces that might still be available (pending quality review.).

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...
