This selection is for DEPOSIT for this special E unit, produced for us by Broadway Limited Imports.  This engine selection includes Paragon4 (sound) DCC.

Never before produced in N Scale, this Union Pacific E unit was the decorated in red white and blue for the ‘Preamble Express’.  A train that preceded the American Freedom Train to test the routes and stops for that train.

It is possible, but we cannot confirm nor deny that we may be producing the four car Preamble Express (red whit & blue) train. But what a good idea as we launch the 250th celebration of the United States of America! Stay tuned. But if we do or do not, this engine is still a must for any red, white & blue lover.

The engine will come with special package insert commemorative of the 50th anniversary of this Bi-Centennial engine, and the expected total price is $249.

It is expected the summer of 2025 and will not be produced again.

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

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!!!

You are in my book one of the very best.

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.

I got my new Santa Fe business cars, they are superb and worth the wait ten times over.

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!


Nothing better than receiving that white box from Lowell Smith.
