NP’s ‘Mainstreeter’ Observation
Micro-Trains continues to struggle from the results of the Talent fires and staffing challenge caused by the Covid situation. This has delayed this release.
It is planned for late 2023. Stay tuned here for updates!
Produced by Micro-Trains, this heavyweight car is decorated in Northern Pacifics’ ‘Pine Tree’ paint scheme.
NP cars in this paint scheme lasted past the 1952 transition to the Loewy Two-Tone Green scheme. While many were painted into the new scheme, other Pine Tree cars were shifted to retirement and used in excursion service.
We have added this car to the North Coast Limited 1947 line, as it would both be prototypical (as it could have been run on that train) as well as a faster solution to an ‘observation’ for this train. The ’rounded end’ 1947 NCL Observation is just farther down the track.
