Latest Additions

A few years back, Division Point produced an excellent set of Santa Fe company service tank cars. We recentlly watched an auction where a number of these cars were sold, fetching prices from $350 to $400 each, not including buyers premium. BPL has a few of these pieces still available. As winter passes in this post holiday time, we are happy to provide you a number of these same cars at even better pricing. Take a look and let us know which will work for you!

We hope all of you have had a blessed and peaceful holiday season.  After a busy December, we are taking a rest for the new year coming up.  Now that you have the gifts from your loved ones in hand, we would like to let you get something on your own terms.  BPL has a SELECTION of models on sale for the post Xmas break.   We will keep these going into the new year (even we don't know how long.)    Check them out and let us know what you might like.  If there is something not on this list but on the site, ask about that too as we have also done some pricing updates (down and up).  You never know just what will suddenly become available!   Enjoy!

Pick up notices have been received from Union Terminal Imports for the EMD E7/8/9 diesels for IC, SP and Wabash.   These should be in our hands in a few weeks.   There are still a few units available for IC and Wabash and a single A unit for SP.  (11/30/2019 check listings for latest updates)

What's New

Division Point has provided an update to the listings for the EMD NW-5 project.  There are two new additions and several deletions.  Please check the latest and let us know which version(s) you would like.

They have also added a BN and GN caboose project to complement the diesels.  This will include the unique 'Hutch' branch version and a model with three cabooses.

Having received the EMD E Unit diesels from Union Terminal Imports we are now awaiting the IC Trains (City of Miami City of New Orleans) which should start arriving within weeks.

Expected up next are the Alco DH 643 diesels. One change in this project is that the 3 unit set will not have the NYC test car due to a lack of appropriate data to build it correctly.

Progress is also being made on the SP narrow guage project (engines and rolling stock), UTI having to recover from the lose of the pilot models by the shipping service. No delivery timeframe has been determined.

UTI has is also now working on a re-run of the DODX flat cars produced a few years ago. These will be produced with different road numbers. There will also be extra trucks available for those interested. We will update model specifics in a few days. These are currently expected by the end of 2020.

Division Point's latest newsletter has some interesting teasers for you about upcoming projects.   Work is currently being done on Alco RS / RSD / RSDMsSP Cab ForwardsUP #80 Coal Turbines and Alco PA / PB Diesels. Progress is also being made on the NW-5 diesels with some new additions to the listings, including some GN cabooses (listings to be updated soon).

DP has also proposed a couple of new project ideas, including the following:

  • A small run of SDL-39’s for Milwaukee Road and Chile railroads;
  • The E/F project is also in the wings - mixed E unit and F unit diesels that ran together;
  • Espee MK-5 and 6’s - a follow up to the popular previous run;
  • The SP MM-3 is still in the works, and looking at possibly doing the AC-9

These are proposals right now, but give us your feedback and let us know if you are interested.
