MKT – Pacific (4-6-2)  #356

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 356 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!

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!

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.

Nothing better than receiving that white box from Lowell Smith.

I have never been treated as graciously and in a manner more suited to a VIP in my life, as I was on our train trip.  It’s obvious how you’ve made your life a success story.  Looking around the train and seeing your friends I’m pretty sure they  were all made to feel very special by you, and your…

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!
