What's New

North Bank Lines has provided a Fall 2018 newsletter with the following notes:

There are a few minor updates to the steel caboose project.   There are about 250 reservations, so the cuttoff for the builder will be coming up soon.  If there are any pieces you would like, please let us know soon.

The SP P-12 project is very short on reservations and may be canceled.  If you would like one of these unique Pacifics, or know someone interested, please let them know so we can help move this forward.

The other projects are still in the early planning stages (CB&Q/GN/NP 2-6-6-2s, WP 2-6-6-2s, SP 4-8-0s) with revised announcement pages expected in the future.

Oct 15, 2018  Sale is done - thanks for all who participipated.   Summer is progressing very nicely.  Like you, we're outside, not paying too much attention to the trains at the moment.  This is the perfect time for a SALE!   For an undetermined time we will provide an unknown discount for your purchase.  This will be a sale full of rumor and innuendo.  Just let us know what you would like and make an offer - we might be able to do that, or we might not.  You never know until you try.  (however, no layaways, payment will have to be in full - does not apply to previously reserved or requested models.)  (I know, we did this last year, but you folks liked it, so...)

Inside of New York City's Grand Central Terminal is a secret basement.  While virtually unknown, it serves an important and vital function.    
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...
