The purpose of this set was to provide a single, multi-railroad set circa April 1950 for the PRR Eastern Region.
The idea was to provide freight cars specifically for the location and the era.
I received a lot of coaching and assistance from several people for which I am forever grateful.
My focus was new and updated freight cars.
I hope you are not offended by the reuse of existing models, but this was meant to be an activity builder focused set.
As with the Buffalo set, this will be offered
with and without locomotives.
Railroads represented in this set include:
ONE HUNDRED freight cars were developed for this set. Almost all freight cars are either new models,
or upgraded versions of existing models.

This set has been 'under construction' for well over a year.
Many people have assisted in its creation, if I have forgotten your input,
I apologize. At my age, I can't tell you what I ate yesterday...
Rod McLauchlan (Railsim Images) for his
artistic promo shots
Pete Mulvey - for the original idea of creating an activity-based set
Chris Parker - for weeks, if not months, of painstaking research on what the PRR would
have looked like in April of 1950... Also for the multitude of skins for many of these freightcars, probably more skins than I did!
Tim Muir - for his gracious permission to use and modify his X29 box car models for many of the older box cars in the set.
Dave Nelson for detailed drawings, photographs and knowledge of vintage freight cars.
The crew over at Elvas Tower who helped me on multiple ocassions when I was 'stuck'
Our beta testers, Chris Parker, Rick Berg, Pete Mulvey, Gaetan Belanger and David Carleton
and to my 7 year partnership with Gaetan Belanger, without whom, none of this would have been possible!
