Here are photos of the uncorrected Blue Bird pilot models. Some of the key corrections include: the production models will have correct color see through ( not fogged ) glass in the dome and car side windows. The seats and dome floors will be lowered to the correct height. Railings will be eliminated and window shades will be added in the walkways under the domes. Please see your dealer to order.
We have updated the models being produced for our E unit project. Unfortunately we had to cancel the Southern Railway versions due to lack of reservations. We expect the E units to arrive in July of this year.
We are producing a very limited run of Southern Pacific SD45R GRIP models. These will come in a number of configurations and paint schemes each with appropriate details. A few of these locomotives went to Montana Rail Link. We will be doing a couple of those as well.
Models will come factory finished, dcc ready, with directional lighting. See your UTI dealer (listed on the friends list at right) to order. Quantities will be limited to pre-orders only.
Wabash E7 1002 !!! Hearing your input, we have added the Wabash E7 1002 in the blue and gray scheme to the E unit line up. This is the unit that was so often photographed with the original Blue Bird. Please get your orders in as soon as possible as well as your orders for the train. Thanks, Ed and Chuck
