The KMs have arrived and are on the way to dealers.

The Krauss Maffei project models have arrived and most have been shipped to dealers. I am biased but they are spectacular. There are a couple models remaining. If you didn’t get the one you wanted. Have your dealer check. They will all be gone by the end of next week. – Special thanks to Bob Zenk and Se Ho for a great data / research package and amazing execution.

Norfolk Southern Heritage Units

We are pleased to announce production of the entire fleet of Norfolk Southern Heritage units in HO brass built by Boo-Rim Precision in Korea. The models are being produced with details “as delivered”. The project team includes Brian and Missy Marsh who will be providing their extensive data package of photographs and notes captured while they were on-site as the units rolled out of construction and painting and in service photos. Models are available individually and in a complete set. Those who commit to a complete set will receive a wood wall display case with brass tags identifying each of the 21 units. The models will be imported in increments of five or six models with an increment being delivered at three to four month intervals. We anticipate delivery of the first increment in mid to late 2019.” Some photos of a select number of them below. All photos by and courtesy of Brian Marsh, all rights reserved.

Interesting version of Number 9

The story goes the Bakersfield roundhouse foreman decided number 9 needed a new look. He asked the shop forces to change her into a more historic looking locomotive. Those working the Slim Princess, especially engineer Walt Ferguson, were not happy with the result. We are offering number 9 in this configuration for those that find it cool, or that happen to model the date range she was in this configuration.
