NBL Dealer Newsletter 2019 Spring

05/02/2019

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.
