MKT – Pacific (4-6-2)  #353

Broadway Limited Imports has produced this steam power, a style we see used on the Texas Special. If you love the ‘Special’, you may want to look deeper here to this story, just in case you did not know.

When the new diesel E-7’s were put into service on the Texas Special, it was not known how long it would take to service them in San Antonio in preparation for their northbound return. Remember in 1947, it was still the steam era and the diesel was a new ‘beast’ that was yet to be understood. So the E units were traded for the steam in Waco for the journey between Waco and San Antonio.

The M-K-T like many roads favored the Pacific class steam to pull the fast passenger runs. Second only to the big Northern’s (4-8-4), Pacific class steamers were commonly seen on most all roads in those days.

There are two road numbers available for a short time. So consider the possibility of  ‘double-heading’?  It will be smart for you to reserve early. Be sure to see the black & white photo here. This photo published by our friends at Kalmbach is picture proof, this really did happen.

If you want everything ‘Texas Special’, then please do not think about this very long. This was a regular production run from BLI and this is the remaining stock folks!

Only DCC (Paragon4) are in stock.

This selection, is for engine road number 353 with the DCC Paragon4 sound. If you have not heard it yet, you will love the Paragon4 steam sounds!

All aboard for the Texas Special!

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.

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!

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.

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.

G.D.

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!

B.L.

Thank you ever so much for being such an integral part of the model railroading hobby!

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!

J. LaBoda

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!!!

Ray F.

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.

Lowell, I just want you to know – you make this hobby fun!
