New Passenger Train Project – Wabash City of Kansas City

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.
