The 5660 PD can be seen rolling throughout North America. These iconic models will be packed with features such as:

• Ready-To-Run
• Fine-Scale Detail
• Prototypical Ride Height
• Installed Train line Air Hoses (HO & N)
• Installed Coupler Cut Levers (HO & N)
• Body-Mounted Knuckle Couplers

N 52' Gondola - PRE-ORDERS DUE
March 13, 2015


Just a quick reminder that we're closing pre-orders on SIX NEW SCHEMES on our N Scale ACF 70-Ton 52' Gondola!

First produced in 1948, for Pennsylvania Railroad as class G31, PRR purchased 11,600 welded cars of this body style in the G31/G31A/G31B/G35, serving every corner of North America in many customer applications. Besides PRR, several other railroads also purchased these gondolas from ACF, and some former PRR cars were purchased second-hand by various railroads. Most of these gondolas were phased from revenue service during the 1990's.

Don’t miss SIX new schemes on this fine-scale model! Featuring extremely accurate detail, fine brake rigging, crisp lettering, and more, these models will be available later in 2015. Pre-order today through your favorite dealer or direct - collect all 24 road numbers!
