Office Car Special Power!

Here is something different. I have set up to do a survey and would love to get your opinion. The Norfolk Southern’s Office Car Special has it’s own special power of F units. Running the complete train the units are run in A-B-B-A configuration. I have chosen the InterMountain Railway’s F7 for this as they produce a very nice F unit, and I am certain they will be beautiful, as well.

If you have interest in the latest offering, the ‘OCS Series’, I am sure you will want engines for your train. Please take a look. They will be produced in sets of A-B and there will be two sets offered. To make it more exciting, InterMountain is now going to offer these in the choice of analog (DC), or Digital (DCC), or Digital with sound… If you were to buy these, which would you choose?

I will save your response and send it back to you when reservations open up for these, although I am not sure if it will be in 2015, or the following year, because it depends on the interest level. Thanks for taking time to give feedback.

I look forward to continuing to buy trains from my favorite special run train maker. That’s how I think of you now, “The Train Maker”.  And speaking of cool trains, I just received a box loaded with great looking Texas Special cars. Thanks.  I certainly look forward to all the new releases you are planning.

Ferdinand Magellan is great! This really fits your mission of offering significant cars that otherwise wouldn’t be produced.

To say the least this is a HUGE development for N-scale and I, along with a number of others, are indebted to you for making these cars possible. Thanks so very much!!!

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