See what's new in Large Scale!

Please note: An error in the printed copy of the brochure has been corrected in the PDF. The N scale DCC Ready GG-1 Electric Locomotive does not contain an NMRA 8-pin plug.

Wow, lots of cool stuff in the smaller scales. 

Big Hauler passenger cars are nice compliments for the upcoming Spectrum Mogul re-issues. Makes sense to build trains for the locomotives to pull.

I don't think I've ever seen Eureka and Palisades passenger cars made.  Should make a nice compliment for the E&P locomotives out there.

Hi Inside Track,

Thanks for the heads up!!  First new passenger cars in 8 years!!

Will the new passenger cars have metal handrails??

Love the new unlettered Green with gold trim combine, it will be great for those wanting to put their own road name on the car.

The D&RG Coach and Combine in Maroon have new numbers, great for those of us adding to our fleet who want different numbers on their earlier cars!!

As Mark says the E&P and Grizzly Flats cars will be great for those getting the new Spectrum 2-6-0's.

We even get a new G Scale Ballast Spreader!!!

That ballast spreader could be a cool item, too!  Didn't someone make one of those out of 4" piece of PVC pipe a few years back? Thought I saw it in GR.

It is actually a good thing to see 1:22.5 coming back to favour. It is ever so strong in Europe with more and more manufacturers offering a growing range of locomotives and rolling stock. Long live 1:22.5! Best wishes from Tokyo, Zubi

I like the 1/22.5 passenger coaches because they match my LGB 3080 series coaches, and generally work within my parameter of 'does it look about right with the rest of my equipment?'.

Mark, there are many reasons to like 1:22.5 Apart from the existing LGB cars, we almost had these released:

Unfortunately, the company went belly up. But it is getting back in shape. Still no new US equipment, but I hope someone will take these magnificent models of Barry into production some day. Best wishes from Tokyo, Zubi

That green combine is attractive. I'm curious to see the Eureka and Palisade cars and what their paint finish looks like.
Am also wondering if there are enough people like me to make something in that livery but unlettered desirable enough to be worth selling, probably not, really.
