Get your orders in!

Ok - so now that we have a "more-or-less-precise-but-not-really" schedule from the factory, I would encourage your orders for the CP MINI BOX CAR.  This box car, originally made in 1929 was used across Canada in CP RAIL service.  A handful of cars eventually made their way to BCOL for MoW service and icicle duty as well.  What makes the cars so unique was the interior height of only 8'6" instead of 10'. 

You can also still preorder the CN 8 HATCH REEFERS and GTW 8 HATCH REEFERS, so if you were sitting on the fence to see the CP units, you should get off that fence!

Also check out the new run of 1937 and 1944 era box cars including new variants with 4/5 Dreadnaught ends and Express Reefer trucks.  For those asking, the Express Reefer trucks will soon be available separately, part number 900914 (SRP $6.75).  These trucks are also commonly used on EXPRESS variants of the CN 8 HATCH REEFERS.

Hope the summer is keeping you busy!
