What's New

While they have scaled back their work, North Bank Line is looking to produce a run of SP AM-2 Class 4-6-6-2 steam engines.  This is a re-announcement of work they have been talking about a few years ago.   Production will be very limited with quantities in the range of 20 pieces per version.  The current listing has 3 specific prototypes which will be produced.

If there is interest shown, there are research materials available for several other engines.  We would need to see demand for a certain minumum on those.  If you have a group which would like to learn more, please let us know.

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.
