Dear N Scale Customers: We were at the Denver N Scale Collectors Show a wek ago and here is images and information re the current product we will have available on a very limited quantity for our cusotmers.
Back when the Railroads had more interest in their image to the
public, they spent a lot of time and effort on eye-catching paint
schemes to raise awareness in the public's mind when it came to
choose a travel partner, or a shipping agent. Since the industry
has changed (no more passenger or parcel service on the railraods),
those days are gone.
Two of the most desired engine paint schemes of the Burlington
Northern Railroads and Santa Fe Railroad are showcased on our
models. The Burlington Northern "Executive" dark green, cr?me with
thin red stripe is captured on one covered hopper while the 2nd
hopper has the Santa Fe 'War bonnet" with silver, bright red with
thin yellow and black stripes. Both paint schemes were occasionally
painted on various diesel engines during the past 20 years.
Railroad yards throughout the United States are seeing more and more of the very colorful BNSF Speed logo embellished on the sides of freight cars. Our model depicts a 2-Bay ACF Center Flow Covered Hopper of which the BNSF has many of. The slanted logo in orange with it's black underscore gives the impression that this is a fast moving freight which is definitely "On the Move".

Where ever the track and the B&B gangs go, they have to have a supply of clean, potable water for cooking and bathing. The DRG used to maintain a small fleet of ancient, second hand tank cars for the job but eventually they were condemmed by the age of their underframes, so the DRG mounted the still sound tanks on flats or bulkhead flats.
Established by an Act of Congress on April 21, 1862, the Denver Mint opened for business as an United States Assay office in 1863. Gold and silver nuggets were brought there by miners from the surrounding area for melting, assaying, and stamping of silver or gold cast bars. Today, the Denver Mint produces high quality collector commemorative coins, as well as currency. This Limited Edition train is chock full of U.S. Bureau endorsed currency which has been officially shred.
