APRIL 2017: The long-awaited InterMountain SD40-2’s in N scale are here! We also check out Model Power’s new release of 4-4-0 and 2-6-0 N scale steamers with DCC and sound. Check out LGB’s large scale diesel with a combination of details from EMD and Alco road power. All this and more in the April edition of Model Railroad News!
Despite its kitbashed history, the LGB “Standard Gauge” diesel locomotive remains a classic among longtime LGB fans while its compact size, operating qualities, and new DCC/sound decoder upgrade also keep it quite relevant for today’s large scale modeler.
These new N-scale steam locomotives from Model Rectifier Corporation under the Model Power brand fill an empty segment in the N-scale steam roster. The models are nicely done with the latest in technology factory installed.
On February 17, 2017, Fast Tracks announced that it will be buying well known supplier of precision wood products, Mt. Albert Scale Lumber. Mt. Albert Scale Lumber has been the premier supplier of precision wood products for model makers for 25 years. Subsidiary Mt Albert Scale Models has recently announced its eleventh craftsman kit.
