If this is a success, we will release other titles in the series and go back and offer printed versions of the earlier titles. Stay tuned!

In addition to the restocks listed below (in the next post) we also have restocked a couple other items:

A few of the Ann Arbor cars left from Cocoa Beach

There are a few of the kits for the Ann Arbor single sheathed box and automobile cars left from Cocoa Beach. Links as follows:

There are also some of the P118 – Pressure Head Cylinder and Integral Lever Bracket. In addition to the cars listed in the instructions, I have found a few more uses for these parts, most notably many PRR cars that had KD brakes with the integral slack adjuster lever bracket, including the FM, GS, G22, X23, X24, X25, X28, X29. Most of these cars retained this arrangement when equipped with AB brakes, meaning that the AB schedule reservoirs and AB valve were added, but the cylinder from the KD brakes was retained. Enjoy!

Lots to update…

There is a lot to update…

First, a new kit: the CB&Q/C&S/FW&D XM-25/-26. Board-by-board patterns, a fully detailed underframe, accurate decals… a beautiful model.

Next, a new book for pre-order ($36.00 until November 11, $42.00 thereafter): Focus on Freight Cars, Volume Eight: Refrigerator Cars 3

Restocks on many parts, a number available of the first time in years:

Finally, a new decal set: Santa Fe AAR 70-ton 65’6″ Gondolas (Ga-47/-48/-55/-70)

P.S. the Ann Arbor cars were almost entirely sold out at Lisle. I’ll have a handful at the NJ Garden State RPM this Saturday and then we hope to restock by year’s end.

P.P.S. the ’32 ARA revised editions are coming… there were some changes to the layout that took longer than I guessed and I also incorporated some images acquired at Lisle. Please be patient, it’ll be worth it! ETA of about two weeks and shipped out immediately thereafter.
