It is expected now in 2024. Stay tuned here for updates!

Description

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.

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!

Blunt End Observation is a GRAND SLAM! I’ve wanted this car for ages but never figured out a good way to kitbash it.
