What's New

North Bank Line has sent out a newsletter - the big announcement being the cancelation of all unscheduled projects.   Due to low reservation numbers, all of the engine projects have been closed out.   Still in production and to be delivered are the BN, NP, SP&S cabooses.  Many are now in standby, but we do still have a few versions available.

Sale / Specials coming up?

My schedule at the end of the year, especially in December will be busy.   So, in an effort to encourage you brass afficiandos to get your holiday shopping done early, we will be providing some encouragement in the next few weeks.  November could be your lucky month.

For now, let us start with an unusual opportunity.   From other interests, I have available an extra GoPro 4 camera.   It is in excellent shape and has 2 extra batteries and the charger.  This fine camera will be included free with the next purchase of $1,000 (or over) of any in stock item(s).  All purchase terms apply, including layaway.

11/3/2019 - We have a winner for the GoPro camera, so thank you for the kind customer and all of you that may be considering a fine model for yourself of for someone as a gift.

A quick update from The Coach Yard

We just got back from the Hobby-Expo Show in Denver and have received our pilot models for the Santa Fe LW Business cars.

In SLC, we had the pilot for the Business car "SANTA FE" (prototype built by Budd.)  We wanted to enclose the car end for “in-train” service.  SamModel Tech was tasked to find a way to do this and came up with the solution as follows:

Standard

0473_prototype_2.jpg
In Train

We are now looking for these cars to be available in the first quarter of 2020.
