You Asked For It, and

Now We Deliver

 Models & Photo by Dave Mackay, NYCSHS.           HO- Scale Model Kit From WrightTrak.

After we launched the quest for a 19000 NYC wooden caboose almost two years ago you have responded by pre-ordering almost 900 of them.  They are still in the production line and we will get them eventually.While we developed and waited for that model to be produced we entered into an agreement with American Model Builders to bring you an exclusive NYCS 19000 plywood caboose kit, and we have sold over 100 of them.

We continued to hear that you were pleased with these, but you also have been asking us about an NYCS bay window caboose.  Well we are about to deliver for you.  The company, Wright Trak, has agreed to resurrect their resin kit that they had offered several years ago.  So we are now have released that Craftsman kit for you.

We have also asked Wright Trak to develop the decals for the kit and there are currently cigar band decals available from a supplier and Wright Trak and we are working with a new supplier to develop the NYC oval decals for the older lettering scheme.  We have provided them the graphics for the decals. It appears that the graphics will be available in July. Both of those will be available as separate  items.  The caboose kits will be available in early July. The kit comes with trucks but no wheels or couplers as most modelers have different requirements for those. These are unpainted and do not include decals.  Cigar band decals are available from Micro Scale at click here.

NYC oval decals will be available shortly from this store. Watch for an announcement and buyers will be notified by email when they are ready for sale.  We estimate the end of June 2015.
