Division Point update 2018 April 15

04/15/2018

Division Point has just announced that they will be picking up 3 of the projects from the Precision Scale catalog (we will help you with updated reservations once we have the new model specifications.)  From DP:

The Seaboard Airline P-1 streamlined Pacific, the Frisco 4-8-2 Mountain, and the RF&P Berkshire (which will now include the Pierre Marquette, and either the early C&O or the C&NW Berks). I had announced these Berks many years ago and never got the reservations to build them back when we had to do 200 models of each! I am the “Berkshire King” as it were, for doing 6 or so various Berks for various roads in the past. These 3 were never in the pile because they are slightly smaller than the NKP or NYC models. I have to get into my research again, but I don’t believe any of them have been done before.
The SAL P-1 was used to haul the “Orange Blossom Special” between the Left and Right coast of FL after the “E’s” were cut off. They had 2 engines streamlined for this service, and we’ll do both.
Don’t know too much about the Frisco engines, except that he had listed 7 versions…we’ll do 2 or maybe 3 including the semi streamlined version.

 

Precision Scale closing 2018-April

04/10/2018

Our friends at Precision Scale are closing out their business activities.   They have recently sold their operation, along with their parts inventory.   As a result, all outstanding future project listings have been canceled.  There is a possibility that a couple projects may be picked up by another importer.  We will hold reservations for some items and will follow up with those of you who may still have an opportunity to obtain a desired model.

We wish Mark and Beth well.  They have built a strong track record of producing fine scale models for our enjoyment and have earned some time for themselves.

DODX Cabooses - UTI

02/07/2018

Union Terminal Imports has  provided a list of the DODX cabooses they are planning to produce.  The project will also have a special collection model available which will have all 6 cabooses in a single presentation package.

 

NBL Project Update 2018-Jan

01/30/2018

We have previously reported that North Bank Lines was canceling all of their outstanding projects.  After some back and forth, there is some clarification.  NBL is going to re-issue project announcements to tighten the focus of project work.  We will follow up when the new listings are provided, but you can expect the following (per NBL):

...new flyers for the SP P-12 project and the SP TW-2, -3 and -6 projects but the number of locomotives will decrease.  As for the SP AM-2 class, that is a project I have been planning for some time but have not yet announced.  The same is true for the GE 70-tonner project.  New flyers for all of these project will eventually be forthcoming.  However, the next flyer I plan to send will announce the NP, SP&S and BN high and low cupola steel caboose.  I want to use this project to see how well Boo Rim Precision has got a grip on their production scheduling.

 

UTI New Projects Dec 2017

12/30/2017

Union Terminal has announced that they have 2 new projects on the board.  From their web posting of Dec 14:

"First the DODX caboose project. These cars are seen all over the US often trailing Department of Defense special moves. We will be offering six versions and one special collector’s set of all six in a presentation box."

"Second the Southern Pacific Alco DH643. There were three of these locomotives on the SP and we will do all three in all three road numbers they carried with appropriate version detail. All factory painted and lettered. We are also working on a special collector’s set of all three and a New York Central dynamometer car. They ran this way when new on the NYC and D&H. More details to come."

We will post additional details and model specifics when they become available.

 

NBL Update 2017 Oct

11/18/2017

North Bank Lines has announced that the GN O-1 steam engines will be in dealers hands in the next few weeks.

Due to the difficulties with the production process on O-1 project, NBL has also announced that they will be canceling all other projects until further notice - as follows:

"At this point I am looking for some form of assurance from Boo Rim Precision that any future projects would be produced in a timely manner and that communication would be more forthcoming.  Lacking some form of satisfactory assurance I would not anticipate undertaking any further model production.

At this point please consider all pending future projects and current reservations cancelled.  If it appears practical to proceed with another project with Boo Rim Precision I will send a new project announcement to all current North Bank Line dealers.  A further announcement will also be made on the North Bank Line website in the near future."
