Bringing the Baggage Cars to Your Trains

RailSmith is excited to announce that we are working with Wheels of Time to bring you the very best Head End cars for our Build-a-Train series of train consists!

Pressed with the issue of needing heavy-weight Mail & Express Baggage cars, we have made an agreement with, in our opinion the best HW baggage cars in N Scale, Wheels of Time.  It was either this, or we would have to tool up our own new models. Why should we do that, because we do not think we can improve on the amazing Wheels of Time model.

Over the next several years we are commissioning Wheels of Time bring to the marketplace cars that we all need for our trains. You will find most of these in our RailSmith Consist Charts.

Orders will be direct to Wheels of Time and will be similar to how we do it at RailSmith. You will order direct from their web site.  Here is a link to that special RailSmith-Wheels of Time page. You will place your order in advance to assure your delivery. These special cars will only be sold direct to consumer.

We will be working very closely with them to match colors, fonts and the details that you have come to appreciate from RailSmith.

We are looking forward to working with Wheels of Time to help fulfill our need for more great trains!

Many thanks for your superb offerings and beautiful work!


Aside from the quality, creativity and originality, you are to be commended for your ongoing commitment to this (GAC) series, and all of your series of trains over a period of so many years.  There is always something to look forward to. Keep up the great work!’ D. K.


I really am enjoying what you are producing, Lowell! Thanks for doing it. Jerry


Thanks for all the great trains – it’s nice to have such wonderful rolling stock on the layout.


Lowell, thanks to you and your company SP&S modelers (myself included) are having a much easier time modeling the North Bank Road. Thank you for your hard work!


I am speechless!  The AFT Showcase car is everything I hoped it would be; and more.

Thank you ever so much for being such an integral part of the model railroading hobby!

I just wanted you to know my O gauge Hood River Pears car came yesterday in perfect condition. This car is just beautiful I can’t wait for the next one to come out. Keep up the good work.
