SP Narrow Gauge Project!!!! – The Slim Princess in HOn3 – by Boo Rim Precision

We are happy to announce a new and we hope very well received HOn3 project. The SP Narrow Gauge! In this project we will produce all of the motive power from the 1950’s forward including number 8, 9 and the newly restored #18 as well as diesel #1.  We will also produce some select pieces of rolling stock including the number 401 in two versions, the number 12 combine, the water tender tank car and four different freight cars. We know there are many fans of the Slim Princess and we really hope to receive the reservations needed to make this project a reality. There is a list above with the specific versions of each piece we will do. The photos below show some of the versions and there are references to other photos that are available in books and on-line. Please see your dealer and get your reservations in on these. They are critical in making this a reality.

  1. Good after Ed! Great news on the SP hon3 stuff. Been a fan of it since 1957. Need to know basic price range for the loco,s and the cars and water tank. Also, when would the stuff be coming in. Thanks so much. John Myers.

  2. Hi John – We don’t have pricing info yet. I would expect them to be in the range of small HO scale steam and diesels and freight/passenger cars. We will post pricing as soon as we know. – thanks and please let your friends know.

    thank you


  3. Ed, interesting news but I received an e-mail post from Jack Vansworth last Sunday saying he (Division Point) were doing the narrow gauge SP ten-wheelers and associated combines/cabooses in HOn3 next year. Surely you can’t both be doing them? Unless you have agreed to take the project off him?

    • Hi Pete – We spoke to Jack yesterday. We told him we are doing them. We want to do a much larger catalog of the rolling stock with the locomotives and the diesels. We have a commitment from Boo Rim to build the project for us. Appreciate your interest.

  4. Could some of these appear in Carson and Colorado livery too? (Time period might be a problem I know.) I engineer the five Disneyland narrow gauge steam locomotives-the best job in the Park!

    • HI Michael – the versions we are doing are 50’s era so wouldn’t be correct for C&CT. We could consider doing the earlier version if there was enough interest (10 models) – thanks

  5. Ed! Am very interested in the freight cars. I already have 5 of their locomotives. Soon as you have an idea about prices, please let me know so I can plan on acquisition. Thanks. John Myers

  6. Looking forward to finally building up my roster! Unfortunately most of this is after my time period too, but us SPNG guys haven’t been able to be too picky! Which DCC/sound system will these be shipping with?

    • Hi Rob – thanks for the note. These models will be configured for DCC – plug and play. They will be built so you will only need to open the tender to add your DCC components of choice.

  7. Really Interested in a number of these models, especially #18 “late in life”, combine 401, etc. This is truly a great development. Like John, I’d need to have at least a ball park idea of prices and delivery time frame before ordering. Ted Waterhouse

    • Hi Ted, Price will be based on number of units ordered and we only build to pre-ordered quantities. They will most likely be in the >$1500 range like any new highly detailed brass steam engine from Boo Rim. I expect these to be in around Q2-Q3 2019. I suggest if you want one to get it ordered. We never charge a deposit to any dealer for placing an order. If you don’t order it – it won’t be built, that is for sure. Thanks for your interest.

  8. How do I make a reservation and what would be the pricing on the locomotives and rolling stock ? Thanks, Richard

    • Hi Richard

      Please pick a dealer form our web site and place your order from there. I know BPL brass and Brass trains.com offer a preorder discount. We do not yet have firm pricing from our builder. It is dependent on reservation quantities and we do not yet have firm numbers. – thank you
