Models Coming Soon
What's on the workbench?
10/20/18 After my initial dabbling in Nn3 with custom-builds of the Whitcomb 65-tonner, it's on to the next idea - finally doing an Nn3 version of the Climax A's. Initial tests with the Rohokan shorty in Z scale as a test chassis appear successful and adaptive parts are underway.
4/13/15 It will take a couple weeks, but the 1960's waffle-sided 40' piggyback trailer is being made as fast as I can make them before the spring shutdown. This is a unique model used by XTRA leasing (XTRZ) and also leased to several other railroads such as B&O. As soon as I can get instructions written these are a go.
These were very common on several railroads including Santa Fe, and can be seen as the 'odd dark trailer with horizontal ribs' in many shots of second-generation piggyback trains including the Super C. They were used until supplanted by more modern 45-foot and longer trailers in the mid-late 70's.
Here's a quick sneak peek....it does exist.... These have molded up exceptionally well so far. Kit will include trailer body, wheels, axles, styrene for the placards and mud flaps. Easy assembly!
09/16/12 The CF7 is now moved to its own page. It's going to be a while before I take anything else on! Meanwhile, everything will be back in production for fall 2012.
03/03/09 -- Ore cars are moved out! Hmmm. Now what...But the 'big project' that's been around forever is still waiting....
06/25/08 -- The 70-tonner is in production, and the workbench is cleared for the 'next great project'....stay tuned, I'm not ready to blow my cover just yet. But I'll give you a clue, I've already scratchbuilt these before...... now it's time for the kit.
