Amazing limited production model trains.

AFT Release 17 – Tool Car #76


This last car is still in production. I apologize for the extended and unexpected delay. 

Although not sold out, the final cars will become available here after the main batch of cars are shipped and we know how many are left. 


UPDATE: Tool Car 76 is in the final phase of production, but this phase may still take a little time. I hope that the photo here of the finished car is an encouragement to you.  I know it has taken much much longer then expected. This has been due to the complication of the process.   There may be some cars left over and they will be made available when we know how many there are, but there is guarantee of any cars beyond what was ordered.

If you still need this car (the price may not be as prior orders), please select this and with no money being taken, your order will be placed by date. You will be notified should a car be available to you.


This is the seventeenth and final release in the series creating this amazing train of patriotic cars.  Release #17 is the tool car, road number 76. This car is very special and just maybe, I saved the best for last. This ‘Tool Car’ was support for the steam engine 4449 and usually was the first car behind that engine.

The American Freedom Train car 76 will be the first production of a new process.

This car uses a Micro-Trains heavyweight car, with photo-etched sides, to create this unusual piece.  I cannot wait for you to see this release because the detail is amazing! I have a plan that will be a limited solution in case you have missed a prior release such as release #15.  If that is the case, please email me what is on your ‘list of needs’ and I will see if it can be done or not.

Please DO NOT wait long to order this final car.  It is one for the record books.

Thank you again for coming along on this fun journey!




AFT is a real dream come true for me. Thanks for all your hard work!


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.


As a retiree of the Walt Disney Company I look forward to upcoming releases of the Disney Family Museum and Disneyland series.  Keep up the excellent work!


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


I just received the “The Great Locomotive Chase” set from the Walt Disney Family Museum. Very nicely done!

Love your 3-rail O Scale Atlas Woodside Reefer series. Looking forward to future issues.


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.
