Delivery is planned January 2025

Description

NEW ROAD NUMBER: Baggage 9121 was one of 100 cars in this series built by American Car & Foundry in 1946-47 for the NYC.  These cars were used for Mail Storage and Baggage as they were designated for ‘general service’. They were used all across the New York Central system.

David Randall’s book is great documentation of these cars, yet states that ‘it is unknown if all 100 cars in this series had end doors’.  We are producing this car since his documented authority sheds this doubt.

The Two-Tone-Gray NYC paint will match Kato’s recent release of the 20th Century Limited.

Built buy ACF, this is a classic version of this car.

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.

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.

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

I received my #99 business card in the mail today. It looks superb. Thank you for another wonderful job. You are really filling a niche.

To say the least this is a HUGE development for N-scale and I, along with a number of others, are indebted to you for making these cars possible. Thanks so very much!!!
