Check out some videos of the first run passenger cars on YouTube. We are very pleased with the models. We hope you like them as much as we do.
The production models have arrived. We will be inspecting them over the course of the next week or so and then they will be headed out to your dealer. We have a few models that are not yet spoken for.
We are working on another new freight car project. The Ortner version of DODX heavy-duty six axle flat cars. These are very unique cars that were built in the mid 1980’s and are used to haul heavy military (usually tracked) vehicles. They can also be configured to carry single level standard ocean going containers. We have posted a couple of photos and have original prototype fabrication drawings in hand. We will offer this model in a number of road numbers for those that may want to do a unit train of military equipment. We are researching the Thrall and FGE versions of this car as well and may include them if appropriate research material can be obtained.
We will have production samples of the SP and Amtrak 60’s era cars and sets at the SPHTS show in San Luis Obispo 10/29 – 10/31. Please stop in, say hi and check them out. We will also have the pre-production SP versions of the SDP45s for review. First passenger car project production models will be shipped from Korea late this week or early next.
