ABOVE: In the mid-1970s, Rock Island dropped its red, maroon, and yellow liveries and adopted a light blue look and bold “The Rock” image. This is Spring Creek Model Trains’ exclusive The Rock bi-level auto rack in HO scale. 

Among the offerings, Spring Creek Model Trains of Deshler, Neb., has an exclusive Rock Island release. Presented the late era “The Rock” look, this impressive model includes blue flatcar and super structure with white roof section and see-through metal side protective panels.

In addition to this Spring Creek Model Trains exclusive release (which will also be offered in six road numbers in N scale), InterMountain Railway Co. offers BNSF (multiple liveries), Conrail, CP Rail, CSX, Grand Trunk, Mexico’s TFM, Norfolk Southern, Providence & Worcester, Southern Railway, Union Pacific, and Western Pacific, among its releases.
