Category: Product News

Overview

Header

 

"It’s been six years since our last run of amazing HO scale Super Continental Line coaches, and we’re tired of seeing them go for silly money on eBay. So we’re proud to announce the return of... The Lightweight Coach!!

These models have been improved from the original group that we manufactured all those years ago. These improvements include:

  • All-new design with solid floors, solid sides and metal couplers!
    (No wibbly-wobbly bouncy-wouncy construction)
  • Window blinds at random heights instead of all the same!
  • Incredible detail that is still miles ahead of the competition!
  • Higher prices! (Well what did you expect? It’s been six years!)

In addition, we’ve added new road names as well as new road numbers on schemes that have previously available.

The Super Continental Line Lightweight Coach is based on a CC&F design, and it is similar to cars used throughout North America. It is available with partial skirting or with fixed steps and two different styles of trucks, as appropriate."
