Description

Announcing an extremely limited run of custom decorated C-630’s.

Atlas has been commissioned to decorate their amazing C-630 for the SP&S Railway.

After years of waiting, it has been determined that none of the major model train producers will ever produce a C-636.  I have spoken with the owners, or top officials, at Atlas Model Railroad Company, Fox Valley Models, and Bowser.  All these great manufacturers have turned this idea down time-and-again, year after year, stating the few number of major railroads that owned this model does not support the production cost.  In looking further in today’s marketplace, there is not another producer that would entertain a C-636 in N scale.

I have concluded with the differences so few, that a properly decorated C630 model will more than fill the huge space of this epic six-axel locomotive, for our railroads today!  The cab, body, and overall details are the same.  There are only a few items that a knowing eye would notice, and you might be delighted to see some customized details address a few of those areas.

What will be done well is the paint and lettering, as you’ve come to expect, from my SP&S productions.  If you consider yourself a rivet counter, and most of you are not, I am giving you clear notice that this will look like a 636, but is not.  If someday a C636 is made by someone, then I will commission another run with different road numbers and you will agree then again, that the differences are few.

Production on this release is limited to two road numbers and a no number version for those that need more and the BN fans. You may choose the GOLD version to have factory installed DCC and that distinct ALCO sound! My mission statement talks about having the trains I want, ‘in our lifetime’! If that rings true for you, then I hope you will get on board.

Expect these C-636’s late summer. You will love this engine I promise!

Remember they are extremely limited, so please do not hesitate.  This will not be a full production run of engines, and I am delighted that Atlas has allowed us this opportunity!

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

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

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.

What a trip! We had a great time- exceeded our expectations by a mile. The Silver Lariat was simply stunning. A gem on the rails. The scenery and weather were perfect. The delays were not an issue for us at all. All just a good days work on the railroad! Thank you for all the…

Every new release from your Signature Series gets me revved up for the rails.

I am looking forward to many more releases in the new year. I stayed up really late on Christmas to talk to Santa when he came by our house. I asked him for an n-scale SP&S 700, and he said that was out of his league and I’d better call you.
