These unique cars have been produced to introduce a line of cars offered to our members and the general modeling community. This first car is designed to allow members to show off their membership in the Society to visitors to their collections or layouts. We expect the cars to quickly become collectors items because of the limited numbers being produced in this logo and these road numbers.
The cars are numbered 171970 and 172013 to commemorate the founding of the NYCSHS in 1970 and the year that the car will be released, 2013. The NYCSHS is working with manufactures to develop additional models that will be prototypically correct for future sale by the Society. The Modeling Committee is using the archival resources of the Society to provide actual drawings and photos of the prototypes to the manufacturers. Look for some of these models to be introduced in the coming months.
The first models are in HO-scale but we plan models in other scales.
