Amazing limited production model trains.

Talent Relief – Squad 51 ‘Emergency’

Out of stock


This is a very limited production.


On Tuesday September 8, 2020, a wildfire raced through the town of Talent Oregon, home of Micro-Trains Line, N Scale manufacturers.

When it was done, the factory was still standing, but six employees lost everything when their homes burned to the ground.

Squad 51 from the well know TV Series EMERGENCY, was released on this gray Santa Fe flat car as our Concept Car for the 2015 National N Scale Convention held in Sacramento California.

Now is the time for this to become a part of the ‘Concept to Reality’ Series. A portion of these sales will go directly to the MTL Employee Relief Fund.

However, Micro-Trains Line is concerned that this would seem to be a conflict. Helping raise money for their employees, may be thought to be a conflict by some. Who in the world would think such a thing?  Micro-Trains is concerned that it somehow would be misunderstood. (Trust me, they charge me full price for special runs! No breaks, ever.)

So I must yield to their concern. This flat car is being once again being  produced by Lowell Smith, just like a Concept Car. It will be painted Boxcar Red on their 045 series 50′ car with reporting mark SP 9820 as shown in the art rendering here. The slogan ‘Talent Relief’ is printed next to the number to make this piece a positive reminder for you, that you helped these unfortunate employees.

Squad 51 is a fully detailed resin cast model, ready to roll as you see here. (well the wheels don’t really roll).

This very limited release is planned for the 2nd Quarter of 2021.

Thank you for your generosity.

Every new release from your Signature Series gets me revved up for the rails.

So glad our big Alaska trip happened when it did.  It was the trip of a lifetime for me and Nina, thank you so much for organizing it.


These are indeed miniature masterpieces.

That car is about the greatest thing I’ve ever seen in N scale!  Excellent work!

Thank you for everything you’ve done and everything you do for the modeling community. I can honestly say that my enjoyment of the hobby has benefited greatly because of you.

Linda and Pete B.

Just wanted to thank you again for the opportunity to be with you and the many other happy folks who experienced the Feather River Canyon trip.  I know you put a lot of work into making this special trip a reality and it all came together extremely well!


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…


My kids absolutely love the Christmas cars! The C.K. Holiday, along with the Carolwood and Disney cars makes a wonderful Christmas train. It made many a loop under our tree this year.
