    How can we go from almost no choices to all these choices? Thanks Pat, i want all of them! I wonder if he could stagger the releases though. This is going to be a big hit on my bank account! Good move with the undec trailers. I much prefer to customize those.

    Wow. Price feels crazy, but the models look so incredibly great I'll have to get one or two to complement my Volvos...

    Thanks for the info! Will the Xtra logo be printed in red, or just in black as shown in the color PDF?

    Those prices are CRAZY!!!! Not sure how anyone can justify paying $60 for a caboose.

    Indeed, and $40 for what amounts to the cheap fleet rig which should be bulk bought by anyone modelling modern America with lots of highways and industries serving truck and train on their layouts isnt much better.

    $40 is a bit steep, but understandable, for oneoff rigs at that quality(Like, say, the rig from Smokey and the Bandit). But if someone wanted to model a Schneider or JBHunt intermodal yard in their layout.....

    Those prices are MSRP, you’ll be able to get them for less than that. Train-Worx has proven they can deliver on these things. I don’t model DRGW, but I’m excited to see how this caboose looks in person.

    We are also excited to see what this DRGW caboose (with its hefty price tag and "59 individual pieces") looks like in person. Here is our short blog about this highly-detailed model.

    Trainworx Announces New Tooling: Denver & Rio Grande Western Offset-cupola Caboose No. 01403




    Earlier this month, Trainworx announced that it will produce a new tooling for the Denver & Rio Grande Western offset-cupola caboose no. 01403 (as built in 1940).

    Pre-orders for these cars are due by November 30, 2017 with an estimated summer 2018 delivery.

    These cars will run $59.95. This is a highly detailed model. Excluding brass, this is likely the most detailed model of a caboose in N Scale ever produced. It will have the following features: etched metal grab irons, ladders and roof walks; friction-bearing caboose trucks with metal wheels; and electrical pickup and body-mounted magnetic knuckle couplers.

    Electrical Pickup? For user-installed lighting? Will there be an add-on kit for interior lighting or maybe a FRED? At this price maybe it will come with lighting but they forgot to mention it. We will have to wait and see.

    Here is the original announcement.

    Here is a link to Trainworx's Product Announcements Page.
