Latest Additions

The second project soon to arrive from Precision Scale is a set of 4-6-4 steam engines for Frisco.  To keep up with the marketing of the era, Frisco applied additional skirting and color to these engines.  This 'stream-syling' was a method of bringing attention back to the railroad and increase market opportunities.  NOTE: Most of the versions are listed as sold out, but there still may be an opportunity to pick up a standby request.

Precision Scale has 2 projects that will be delivered in the next few weeks.  The first is class G-6ps 4-6-0 steam engines for Milw Road.  These models will have the same streamlined styling that came to define Milwaukee Road passenger service in the mid 1900s.  These engines are especially important for those modeling the secondary passenger trains, such as the Hiawatha-North Woods Service / North Woods Hiawatha,

What's New

Union Terminal sent us a new project announcement, as follows (4/13 please note that there are road numbers now assigned and a couple of adjustments (add/delete) to the listings): 

 

We are happy to announce a new project, Southern Pacific ALCO PAs. We know there are many PA fans out there and we count ourselves among them. Key and Overland have both done a couple runs of various SP PA models over the years. All are very hard to come by especially in red and grey with all the late life accessories and modifications. We are doing nine SP versions with multiple road numbers of each version. Each will come fully factory finished with lighting and DCC / Sound ready. We will only build to preorder quantities so please get your order in asap... ... We will add some photos to the web site as soon as we have permission to use them.

The Coach Yard has been working on a set of early articulated engines for N&W, SP and UP.  We recently received a pricing update and have changed our records accordingly.  These models will be an exceptionally good value and early reservations are starting to fill.   With the continuing improvements in the production process, these should be a step up over the models from W&R.  Make sure you let us know what you would like before it is too late.

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...
