NP’s ‘Mainstreeter’ Observation

In stock

$74.00

 

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 2022. 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 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.

Thank you for all that you do for the N Scale community. Your products by far, in my opinion, are the top of the line when it comes to N Scale Trains and I am always on the lookout for them when they come up for auction.

Many thanks for your superb offerings and beautiful work!

Every aspect of the trip was professionally done.  You and Barbara were on top of every change and your matter-of-fact assurances speak highly of your professionalism.  Jo Ann is a retired chef  and we know what good food is, and the meals provided on the CZ trip were stellar! BRAVO to you and Barbara for…

Thanks, Lowell, for another awesome addition to an already incredible train.

Thank you for producing such well researched quality offerings.

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!

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