We are announcing  the Southern Pacific- 1950's STARLIGHT 9 car set and a many  additional cars - do you need more "head-in equipment" ?

The CB&Q announced in 1940 three trains - The Blackhawk - The Aristocrat and the Ak-Sar-Ben - get your orders in plus lots of additional cars.

The EAGLE is coming  - The 1940 EAGLE and the 50's Missouri River Eagle will be  coming with The EMD  E3's , both in as-delivered and  modified paintschemes.

We have decided to build the CB&Q EMD E5's - a very limited production of AB sets will be made - reserve now

The Southern Pacific  "Research and Test" car  - SP252 (re-built from a Budd 10-6 sleeper, ex California Zephyr)
is on their way to the SP afficianados .

Pilot models  of the M10002/4 were reviewed in  May 2018  - there is a lot of work to be done and delays are expected.
 
 
We are building  the NYC 's  The Pacemaker - two versions,  the PRR's 1938 The General and The Spirit of St. Louis in Fleet of Modernism  and PRR's 1938 Trail Blazer and 1941 Jeffersonian - all in Fleet of Modernism. 
  

 There is a lot of activity at The Coach Yard !

Thanks to those of you that sent  ideas as to  what you wanted  to see manufacturered.  We have lots to ponder !

We have three new trains  scheduled for 2018-19 delivery.

The first one is the Denver & Rio Grande 1971 Zephyr - TCY1700.
 This train went into service because the railroad did not join Amtrak in 1971. see the flyer on the TCY website. We will be producing the unique DRGW #253, Steam Generator car made from an Alco PB-1.

The second train is the Santa Fe's "Employee Recognition Special"  - TCY0492. This train in 1992 did a round trip from Los Angeles to Chicago and gave Santa fe's employees an opportunity to ride behind their first "Northen class" 4-8-4 locomotive # 3751. Approximately 10 thousand employees rode one of the segments offered. see the flyer under SF Business cars.

The next train is in  development. We are announcing the Union Pacific's "1955 Portland Rose" and a number of individual "modernized Heavy weight cars" from the UP re-building program of 1954. Flyer will be coming soon - TCY 1390
