We are doing nine SP versions with multiple road numbers of each version. Each will come fully factory finished with lighting and DCC / Sound ready. We will only build to preorder quantities so please get your order in asap... ... We will add some photos to the web site as soon as we have permission to use them.


Coach Yard Schedule for 2015


The Coach Yard has finalized plans with their builder and have set the following schedule for 2015:



SP / UP Early Articulateds - Update


The Coach Yard has been working on a set of early articulated engines for N&W, SP and UP.  We recently received a pricing update and have changed our records accordingly.  These models will be an exceptionally good value and early reservations are starting to fill.   With the continuing improvements in the production process, these should be a step up over the models from W&R.  Make sure you let us know what you would like before it is too late.


T&P Hudsons


Precision Scale has provided some production sample images of the Frisco semi-streamlined Hudson engines.   These 4-6-4 models will be arriving soon, with several versions still available.  These are unique examples of the approach railroads were taking to update their image, a 1930s attempt to present a more stylish and sophisticated approach to the traveling needs of their customers.


SP LW Sunset Limited - TCY - Update


The Coach Yard is planning a production of the Southern Pacific Lightweight Sunset Limited train from the 1950s.   They have recently updated the project and there are now 2 versions of the train for 1951 and 1956.  There are some paint and detail differences, including different diaphragms.   Please check the listings and let use know if you have a specific preference.
