What's New

One of the cars in the second business car project from North Bank Lines is an early GN A22.  Per NBL:

"in 1925 the car received steel sheathing and it continued in service as a business car until 1950, two years after Mr. Hills death.  Then it was converted to MofW service as GN 03132.  It remained in MofW service until 1972 so in that capacity it overlaps the Burlington Northern era.  Aside from the steel sheathing there is very little difference with the car I’m currently planning so the alternate versions might be possibilities depending on the level of interest."

If you would be interested in either of these additional versions, please let us know.  If there are enough requests, these will be added to the production run.

Division Point has announced a new project - the production of several SP GS Steam engines. The provided listing is for GS-4 series engines, but includes one GS-5. It is expected that a DCC / Sound package can be ordered and a delivered option.

Just a quick update on the business cars coming in soon North Bank Lines.  The delivery has been delayed several times due to late detail and paint corrections.   NBL was hoping to get a partial shipment in in February.  They will have the bulk of the cars in hand any day now - excepting the CB&Q Roundup and the UP Selma which are still being reworked.   Your patience is much appreciated.
