We have added the model numbers and descriptions. Please see the link above for the list and get your orders in. Like always we will only build to pre-reserved quantities. Also remember we never require a deposit from our dealers for reservations.
We are pleased to announce production of the Wabash City of Kansas City. The project includes seven car sets in the following configurations;
Configuration 1) Wabash Blue/Natural Aluminum with Railroad Roman lettering, narrow width diaphragms and skirts.
Configuration 2) Banner Blue with Gothic lettering, narrow width diaphragms and shirts.
Single cars are available in Banner Blue lettered Norfolk And Western with narrow width diaphragms and skirts. The baggage/RPO is not available in N&W livery as the car was destroyed in a wreck in 1961. Wabash E7A #1000 is being produced ( UTI # 5525-1 ) and is available for reservation under the tab with the IC E units. Thanks in advance for getting your reservations in early. Production of the Wabash E7A will begin in June with late fall 2018 delivery. Wabash passenger cars are expected early to mid 2019. Remember we build only to reserved model quantities. Please contact your dealer to reserve if you are interested in any of these.

We have some exciting news about the Illinois Central trains, add on cars and the 10-6 sleeper project. We turned over the research and data packages to Boo-Rim Precision in Korea today. These projects are “highballed”.
At the request of several Southern collectors, we are pleased to add UTI 1084-3 Catawba River and UTI 1084-4 Rapidan River to the Pullman built 10-6 sleeper project. Links to photos below.
Check out this photo by Dr. Nick Muff. He and Chuck were in Alamosa, Co. last month photographing and measuring Illinois Central cars. Here is a photo of IC 755 a 73′ round roof baggage car. We are building this car in the upcoming IC City of New Orleans and City of Miami project. It is UTI 1278-1. Get your orders in now to make sure you don’t miss this one.
