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!

Blunt End Observation is a GRAND SLAM! I’ve wanted this car for ages but never figured out a good way to kitbash it.

Just a quick note to acknowledge receipt of my AFT Tool Car. Thanks so much for another Outstanding Piece of Craftsmanship! The AFT is my most prized “N” Scale collection. I had perceived that there were delays in getting this last car into our hands, but thought it was a problem with China. Your letter…

Keep up setting the bar high and providing a product that exceeds expectations.

Every aspect of the trip was professionally done.  You and Barbara were on top of every change and your matter-of-fact assurances speak highly of your professionalism.  Jo Ann is a retired chef  and we know what good food is, and the meals provided on the CZ trip were stellar! BRAVO to you and Barbara for…

Received GN A10 today. Absolutely stunning! I am very pleased. Thank You all.


I am looking forward to many more releases in the new year. I stayed up really late on Christmas to talk to Santa when he came by our house. I asked him for an n-scale SP&S 700, and he said that was out of his league and I’d better call you.


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