~ THE D&RGW "3000" CLASS BOX CARS ! ~

PLEASE NOTE:
THIS PAGE MUST LOAD COMPLETELY FOR SLIDE SHOWS TO DISPLAY CORRECTLY.


As hard as it is to believe, it's been ALMOST SEVEN YEARS since we received our second production run of these beauties ! And for many of our Sn3 modeling friends the wait has been agonizingly long... For which we truly apologize, believe us... But for at least SOME of that time we were beginning to wonder if we would ever see another run of box cars... So you might say, we were at least as worried as you were... Perhaps even more so...    But the good news is that THE WAIT IS NOW OVER !   (Did I hear someone say "YAY"?)   As in previous model runs, these new Box Cars consist of both "Camel" door and "Economy door versions... ( For the unintiated, this required that we tool two different versions... An expensive proposition in any man's terms... But "The Grande" had similar amounts of both versions on their Narrow Gauge operations, and we figured that any self respecting D&RGW or R.G.S. based layout would require the same... And as you peruse the different versions below you will see that the differences are obvious... )
Below are a couple of close-up views that were a true test of my camera. ( And its operator, ahem... ) If you are into detail, like the ad says, you're going to like what you see ! We guarantee it !

The level of Accurately Scaled detail to be seen on these models is simply staggering... Click any of the photos on this page for an enlarged view or two... Or in some cases, three or four, heh, heh, heh...


Each of these models is a faithful reproduction of its prototype, in miniature... Each is equipped with GENUINE KADEE® Couplers, and COINED, NICKEL PLATED BRASS Wheelsets... And each is Ready-to-Operate, right out of the box...

Of course, we would like to see these models populating all of our customers layouts. But keep in mind that these are SCALE MODELS, not children's toys. As delivered, they are designed to be operated on 27" and larger radius curves... For operation on tighter radius curves, some of that beautiful brake rigging will likely have to be removed... Pity......

We produced 40 of each of these models... Bag yours now while there's a decent selection...    You'll find them listed in our Online Catalog under

Category 1 - R-T-O Cars = Ready to Operate
