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.

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!

I want to be like you when I grow up!

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.

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.

Nothing better than receiving that white box from Lowell Smith.

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.
