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.

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.

I look forward to continuing to buy trains from my favorite special run train maker. That’s how I think of you now, “The Train Maker”.  And speaking of cool trains, I just received a box loaded with great looking Texas Special cars. Thanks.  I certainly look forward to all the new releases you are planning.

What a trip! We had a great time- exceeded our expectations by a mile. The Silver Lariat was simply stunning. A gem on the rails. The scenery and weather were perfect. The delays were not an issue for us at all. All just a good days work on the railroad! Thank you for all the…

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