Amazing limited production model trains.

King of the Cowboys

Years ago when Barb and I met Roy Rogers Jr. “Dusty” as he is known, it was a very special moment.  Being able to include this name in our Great American Circus and Wild West Show is just a treat! It is a shame most kids today do not know of Roy Rogers. Time moves on and names like Roy Rogers are part of our history in ‘growing up’. I watched Roy, his horse Trigger, and his gang all-the-time. It was the early days of television. Do you remember?
This trailer is the second release and is the Atlas 40-foot #102. The under frame and detail is Micro-Trains, with the wheels and tractor from Trainworx. Speaking of ‘King’, I think Pat at Trainworx is ‘King of the Trucks’! I am sure you will agree that he has redefined what a quality highway truck is in N Scale! My Great American Circus release #29 “How the West Was Won’ was so successful that I just had to ask Pat for another release. And, what a beauty it is!  GAC truck #7 pulls trailer #102 on Micro-Trains flat car #25 (image shown is #24). The Micro-Trains flat car is the only piece needed before this releases. I have all the other parts!

I just love this circus series and by your response, you do as well!

Current release ‘The Pie Car’ is available. Don’t forget to feed your clowns!

And as for your goal of 5 releases a year, I admire your ambition, but I won’t hold it against you if you fall short on that accomplishment.  I’m just thrilled you’re doing such an AWESOME job of releasing this amazing train, and hope you don’t stop until it’s all done!

Many thanks for your superb offerings and beautiful work!


My kids absolutely love the Christmas cars! The C.K. Holiday, along with the Carolwood and Disney cars makes a wonderful Christmas train. It made many a loop under our tree this year.

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.
