Executive Line Expansion

I thought I would do something different and share with you some future plans in this line. I appreciate that many of you have sent me suggestions for this great series, and I thought that maybe it would be okay if I shared what the next few years looks like.  I have them mapped out and I am very excited about it!  So here are ‘some’ but in no particular order:  Alaska Railroad, Union Pacific, Chicago Northwestern, Great Northern,  Burlington Northern Santa Fe, Illinois Central, Southern and Canadian Pacific.  And, just because you did not see Burlington Northern, New York Central, Pennsylvania and Canadian National listed, does not mean they are not coming, as well. Wouldn’t you rather be surprised along the way, because there will be surprises.  Oh the fun of railroad modeling!

I just received my Carolwood Pacific cars yesterday. They are exquisite! Every attention to detail was paid here, and I can’t thank you enough for putting this into production.  They are going to look amazing, circling my main Street miniatures display. Facebook Twitter Google+ Pinterest
