North Bank Line notes:

The BN, NP, SP&S caboose project is progressing very well.  Boo Rim Precision has data packages for all 18 versions and they propose delivery for late 2019.  The project is fully reserved but totals can be increased until the final approvals of Boo Rim’s submittals.  Quantities will be set at that point.  It is anticipated take 30 days so production totals should be set by around mid June.

The model listings for the 2-6-6-2 articulateds (GN L-1 class, NP Z class, CB&Q T-1 class) have been changed.  Since Boo Rim Precision was hesitant to undertake the number of versions first proposed listings have been scaled back.  Please check the links for currently available versions and let us know what you would like.

Unfortunately, due to low reservation levels, the SP P-12 4-6-2 project has been canceled.

Division Point has announced a new project to produce SP 4-8-8-2 cab forward engines.   With the help of Dr. Bob Church these models are expected to be the finest ever produced. There will be 3 engine numbers available for each class, and all will be in the “Post War” paint scheme with the Silver panel on the cab front. All the models will feature the large rectangular 220-R-2 tender. Models will be available Lettered with the Large “Southern Pacific” on the tender sides or in Black (Late) livery.  The ESU V5 decoders will be using the latest sound files to give you the true experience of hearing these engines as they were in prototype. The lighting will include Headlight, backup light, front and rear markers, stack light, firebox flicker, train indicator and number board lights.  Boo-Rim will be the manufacturer on this build, with a target minimum radius of 30 inches (if possible.)

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...
