The Coach Yard

August 18,  2022



The NMRA - National Train Show was a great event. Lots of people stopped by to say hello !



In 2021 Howard Holland of HOWIEs BRASS TRAINS commissioned us, The Coach Yard to build the inaugural 1938 PRR Lightweight Fleet of Modernism Broadway Limited train sets, both eastbound and westbound.

With Howards guidance,  The Coach Yard reproduced the exact consist for both trains with correct interiors. There are only 20 sets, 10 east and 10 west being built. They will be packaged per HOWIEs BRASS TRAINS specifications, in a Teak wood box with limited edition numbering.

Howard Holland was in a serious automobile accident in 2021.  He was determined to complete the special train set and did his best to lead the project to completion.

Unfortunately, his injuries were too great, and Howard passed in May of 2022.

His wife Maritza wants to see his dream completed.

The PRR 1937 Broadway Limited 10 car train will be completed in August  2022.

Please contact Maritza Holland at HOWIEs BRASS TRAINS to obtain a very limited production, exclusive to her company.
