SEPTEMBER 2019: Santa Fe serves as the theme for this exciting edition where you’ll find reviews of Rapido’s HO-scale rebuilt Santa Fe Budd RDC set, Atlas O’s 50-foot boxcar, Bachmann’s N-scale Dash 8-40CW, and Kato’s eye-catching “Goldbonnet” Alco PA-1 recently released in N scale. All this and more in the September issue of Model Railroad News!
Atlas O offers a new production run for its impressive O-scale Pullman-Standard PS-1 50-foot plug door boxcar model decorated in Santa Fe’s iconic 1970s “Shock Control” paint scheme.
Walthers attempts to strike a balance with its Mainline HO-scale F7 models that provide some separately applied details and a Proto-level drive mechanism with a modest suggested retail price.
ScaleTrains.com will expand its Rivet Counter line in HO scale with the arrival of an all-new coil car model. Based on a Thrall/Trinity prototype, this popular steel hauler first entered service on North American railroads in the mid-1990s.
