This second batch release is shipping summer 2023

 

Description

This car is exactly the same version as the 1st release of December 2022. Only noted ‘2’ as to easily distinguish between this and any prior order.

Please see the original release text copy below. All is the same. There will be a very limited number of these cars in this overrun production which is planned to ship summer 0f 2023.

Product Description: For the first time, a Concept Car was produced for an event, other than the National N Scale Convention.  This time for the huge event who’s name must go unmentioned so the Mouse Police are not bothered.

As our other Concept Cars, this Edition size is very limited.

This car like all our Concept Cars, are completely produced by hand, and hence its limited quantity. Our own very special railing with ‘hidden Mickey’s’ helps make this a real beauty!

This model represents the classic car Lilly Belle as it is at present day Disneyland. It was originally the observation car of the passenger train known as RETLAW 1 the day Disneyland opened, July 1955. Reintroduced in 1976 and named for Walt Disney’s wife Lillian, the Lilly Belle is a car classified as a ‘Presidential Car’ that is reserved for special riders.

Special Production Note: This car does not come with a coupler, thus not a completed ready-to-run car. This done to satisfy TWDC that this truly is a decorated proof of concept only, and not a completely operable model train. (So you would need to add your own coupler, or use as a load.) Personally, I think this car on a flatcar will   create a spectacular load and conversation piece on any railroad!

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!

Lowell, I am very pleased with the N Scale Ferdinand Magellan Presidential car. As a retired US Secret Service agent I have conducted security advances for the president and his family traveling by train. I have done a lot of research on the Ferdinand Magellan and the model has excellent detail. It will be an…
