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.

Milw Road G-6
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,

NYC / P&LE H-10 2-8-2s
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.
SP 'Sad Sam' Mail train - Baggage cars
Baldwin 2-6-6-2T Logging Engines
Now in from Precision Scale are the Baldwin 2-6-6-2T steam engines. Strong demand drove a quick development cycle and the high interest has shown in the quick sales of these models. Beautifully done, these models cover their lives from the Weyerhauser era through Rayonier and handful of other colorful enterprises. Each model shows the unique details for its owner, along with paint and lettering changes. For those who are undecided, we still have one unit which is fully painted and not finished - but with a set of decals to produce most of the schemes - you get to choose!
