Description

Texas Special – Railway Post Office  ‘Albert Martin’

Heavy-Weight Cast of Cars – The MKT & the Frisco both contributed 14 new streamline cars to build the consist of the Texas Special.  Learning there was not enough time to properly turn the train in San Antonio for the return trip, both railroads contributed existing heavy-weight cars to build a third train set. These cars were then mixed with the light weight cars so that no patron of the train would complain that ‘they got the old train’ instead of the sleek new streamliner.  Micro-trains has been commissioned to produce this car, the first of these heavy-weight cars. All are smartly decorated in the shadow line scheme as seen here and will match the RailSmith Texas Special.      RailSmith Models plans to produce the streamline RPO, so this heavy-weight version will stand in until then. The great news, it is prototype! What a great story!

Albert Martin was one of the defenders who died at The Alamo.
