N SCALE FT LOCOMOTIVES – WITH SOUND!

One exciting Advance Reservation item this month is FT locomotives in both HO and N scales. Ten paint schemes are available, one of which has not been offered before. The others have not been available for several years.

The N scale will be offered in three versions – DC, DCC, and DCC with sound. If you have any of the previously announced FT’s on reservation in N scale, it is possible to upgrade them to DCC or Sound. Please talk to your InterMountain representative if you want to make any changes.

HO AND N SCALE 4750 CUBIC FOOT HOPPER CAR

This release of the 4750 hoppers include ten paint schemes, four of which are entirely new. The other six feature new road numbers for those of you that are accumulating cars for a LARGE hopper car consist. Many of these models are very colorful, just as they were in real life, adding a great deal of character to any avid modeler’s layout. Six road numbers are offered for each paint scheme and each car is equipped with InterMountain metal wheel sets.

HO AND N SCALE 10′ 6″ INSIDE HEIGHT MODIFIED AAR 40′ BOXCARS

Every model railroad needs a good supply of boxcars. These cars were in plentiful supply during the transition era and later. The 10′ 6″ inside height was a modification to the original 1937 AAR 40′ boxcar, providing extra capacity. Ten paint schemes are available in this offering and seven of them have never before been available from InterMountain. These beautifully decorated and extremely accurate models will be a welcome addition to any freight car consist from the 1940s through the 1970s. Six new road numbers are available in each paint scheme.

Z SCALE DIGITAL TURNTABLE AND ACCOMPANYING ROUNDHOUSES

We are now taking reservations for the all-new Z scale digital turntable from Rokuhan. It is currently under development and will be available within the next few months. We had a prototype model on our table at the NMRA show and were very impressed with its operation. Every Z scale modeler will want one, or more, on their layout. Available with the turntable as add-ons are red brick and tan brick versions of a three-bay roundhouse. The turntable controller is included.
