Description

Broadway Limited will be producing these exclusively for Lowell Smith Signature Series for use in RailSmith production of the 1967 Great Northern trains.  The colors will match our RailSmith colors for this train, so these will go perfect with your train set. 

In 1967 the GN adopted the new color scheme of Big Sky Blue. But when they did this, not all power units were given this new decoration. The Great Northern Historical Society as well as several books document the exact engines given this blue, white and gray paint, so we are confident of our road number choices.

One interesting note about the passenger F units. (The GN referred to them as ‘P3’ or ‘P7’s). It was not often that a complete set (A-B-A) of  F units in Big Sky Blue  was assigned to any of the GN passenger trains. Of course you can do what you want, including buy two A units, but here is our plan: we intend to produce a single A and a single B unit in the F7 style (GN=P7’s) at this time. Then in the following production of F units, we will commission BLI to produce a F3  (P3) single A & B units.

If you look at the many photos if the BSB P units, you find a mix of P3 and P7’s. And in many cases just a single B unit in so many lash ups! Check out the photos we have included here. As you will see, these are great companions to the GN’s ‘Simplified’ engines we released last.

 In this selection, road number 371B, will come equipped with DCC and BLI’s Paragon 4 Sound. This is a deposit only with the balance due payable before delivery, which is expected to be Q4 2024.  Total cost should be close to $264.

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!

Linda and Pete B.

Just wanted to thank you again for the opportunity to be with you and the many other happy folks who experienced the Feather River Canyon trip.  I know you put a lot of work into making this special trip a reality and it all came together extremely well!

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.

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

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.

I just received my Carolwood Pacific cars yesterday. They are exquisite! Every attention to detail was paid here, and I can’t thank you enough for putting this into production.  They are going to look amazing, circling my main Street miniatures display.

Keep up setting the bar high and providing a product that exceeds expectations.

P.B.

Thanks for all the great trains – it’s nice to have such wonderful rolling stock on the layout.

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!!!

Many thanks for your superb offerings and beautiful work!
