GE Hybrid Evolution Prototype and Test Car -New Photos!

Friday, June 15th, 2007

This Wednesday I had the pleasure of photographing the new GE Evolution Hybrid Prototype #2010 under beautiful and sunny skies.  Please take a moment and enter HYBRID into the search field above to view the photos for yourself.  Personally the locomotive looks much better under a blue sunny sky rather than many of the images we have seen of the unit with an overcast sky.  During the visit just under 400 images were made of the Hybrid locomotive along with a number of important measurements to assure the quality of this fine locomotive.

Overland Models will be producing this locomotive in HO scale brass as a seperate item or as a set along with the GECX #90 Test car painted in the matching light blue color. To see new images of the test car by itself type Test Car into the search field above.  As with the Hybrid unit several hundred image were made along with a number of measurements to assure the accuracy of our model.

Paint and and lettering will be matched with paint chips acquired to assure delivery of the models in the proper color scheme.  Kadee #58 couplers will be installed along with Digitrax DCC/ DC boards in the locomotive to control light and motor operation. 

We hope you will find these models of interest and contact Pacific Western Rail to place a pre-order for these limited production items due in the Spring of 2008.

Overland Models, Inc. Project Announcement
 

I am pleased to announce our GE Hybrid Evolution Series Locomotive and GE Test Cars project.

Please note that the locomotive and test car sets will be limited to 35.

Since we also expect to deliver this project in the Spring of 2008, and given the production lead-times that are required to meet that target, we are again likely to close the reservation book for the individual locomotive and the two test cars more quickly than we normally would.

I hope that you and your clients like this group of models.

NRE/ BNSF/ NS/ UP 3GS21B Gensets - New Announcement

Thursday, May 24th, 2007

Coming in N and HO scale brass in 2008 will be the new Genset Switchers built by National Railway Equipment and operated currently by BNSF Railway and Union Pacific Railroad.  Norfolk Southern recently announced their intention to purchase two of the locomotives that are to the same design as the Union Pacific 3GS21B.

The classification 3GS21B stands for 3 Gensets/ 2100 horsepower/ B type truck

This new series of locomotives if part of the railroad industries ?eGreen?f efforts.  The NRE 3GS21B uses only donor truck sideframes which are remanufactured, then all other parts of the locomotive are completely newly fabricated pieces.  As our country moves toward cleaner air and more fuel efficient vehicles these new switchers are sure to hold an important position in railyards all around the United States. 

The HO locomotives will be produced by the craftsmen of Ajin Precision Mfg.

NRE 3GS21B GENSET SWITCHER PROJECT
BNSF - DEMONSTRATOR - NS - UP
HO-scale AND N-scale

 
Overland Models, Inc. Project Announcement
 
It is with great pleasure that I am now able to announce our new HO-scale AND N-scale ultra-low-emissions NRE 3GS21B GENSET Switcher projects.
 
For your information, 3GS21B stands for:
3GS - 3 Generator Set Modules
21 - 2100 Horsepower
B - 4-Axle Trucks

These projects could not have happened without the commitment and assistance that National
Railway Equipment [NRE], BNSF, and Union Pacific Railroad respresentatives have provided to
Overland Models every step of the way.

Speaking of Union Pacific, they have a very substantial and wide-ranging commitment to a GREEN
view of railroading. Click the UP Green Program to visit the UP site and to learn about their many
environmentally-conscious initiatives and successes.

In addition, click on Union Pacific's
Press Release for a quick review of the many benefits of
these leading-edge locomotives.

Given the major contributioons to a cleaner environment that these engines provide, I was
delighted that I could arrange to meet up with the working GENSET switcher to take the
picture that I now share with you in this e-mail and to take the hundreds of additional
pictures required to ensure that our models maintain their reputation as the most reliably
prototypical models that are available.

This project is very likely to be heavily over-reserved, so I urge you to reserve any of the models below that you and your customers would like as soon as possible.

You will note that there is no picture yet for the NS model. When the NS paint scheme and numbering decisions are announced, we will be right at the front of the line ready to transmit
that information to you.

We expect to deliver this project in early 2008, and given the production lead-times that
are required to meet that target, we will likely be closing the reservation book more quickly than we normally would.

I hope that you and your clients like this group of models as much as I do.
