NEW PRODUCTS: Just Around the Corner!

Modern Era O Scale has new kit in production currently.  They are a Soo Line 7-post 50′ boxcar and a Southern Pacific exterior post double door 50′ boxcar. These are urethane kits cast by one of the best foundries in the hobby.  Each kit includes a custom plastic hardware set for details.  Decals will be available for these cars.   You will need to bring your own trucks and couplers to finish off these beautiful cars.

Both kits will be released soon so keep an eye on Modern O Scale’s website to see the announcement.

Protocraft is expecting a new shipment of Barber 70-ton roller bearing trucks this week.  Check their website for when they are ready to ship.   This is a very popular truck for the modern era and sell out quickly.

Twin Star Cars continues to amaze with interesting new products they are preparing for the market.   Their newest eye candy is an EMD cut lever bracket found on hood units from the GP-7 to the latest locomotives.  PSC has offered this part but lacks the detail and accuracy possible via 3D design and printing.  Terry Van Winkle did a beautiful job rendering of the part and produced samples in white bronze castings for Twin Star.  The parts are starting the production process and will be out this fall.

Here are the new parts installed on a Red Caboose GP pilot.

All three items are in the pipeline and will be available soon.  Be patient and save your pennies.

  1. Gene, Do you know of anyone who can do a brass casting 12.5 inches long by 3/4 inch deep from a 3D print made of investment casting material? It is of a flat car frame. Regards, Greg Stone

  2. Hi Gene,
    Are those new 70-Ton Roller bearing Protocraft trucks going to be available in O5W, as well, or just Proto 48?

    Thanks.
    Scott
