ScaleTrains announces N autoracks
ScaleTrains.com announced in late January upcoming production of its Rivet Counter N-scale Greenbrier-Gunderson Multi-Max Autorack in eight road names.
With several thousand auto carriers built for nearly all North American Class One railroads since 2014, the Greenbrier/Gunderson Multi-Max Autorack has become the premier auto carrier design of the 21st century. Many wear colorful paint schemes and feature large logos which help them stand out alongside older autorack designs.
The cars are fully assembled and include multiple road numbers, railroad and road number specific details, four body types (early, intermediate, late, and current), car rack numbers and ARR rack clearance data is specific to each car number, factory-applied metal grab irons, coupler cut levers, and trainline hoses; ASF low deck swing motion trucks and body mounted couplers.
Road names and paint schemes include BNSF, Canadian National, Canadian Pacific, CSX, Kansas City Southern, Norfolk Southern, Soo Line (CP) and Union Pacific.
Models are expected this summer.
InterMountain hoppers arrive
InterMountain Railway Co. has HO-scale 4750-cubic-foot hopper cars in stock and three paint schemes of the company’s HO-scale GE ET44AC (Tier 4) locomotives are in transit.
InterMountain received seven road names for the hoppers in December and 12 more were shipped in January. The models are equipped with metal operating couplers and InterMountain metal wheelsets.
Eleven of the road names are offered in four or six road numbers. Union Pacifics Bicentennial car is offered in one road number to match the prototype.
BNSF, Union Pacific and Canadian National ET44ACs are expected to arrive in February with the remainder of road names to follow.
Also, several paint schemes of the GP16 are in production.
