Wheels of Time N scale SP and UP Harriman baggage cars.

Wheels of Time N scale SP and UP Harriman baggage cars:  There is a slight interference between the flanges and the under frame ribs. There are a number of solutions to remedy this problem. If you have bought one of these cars, and would like .010" thick washers to be placed in between the truck and frame at the bolsters, just let us know and we will happy to mail you the washers. It will be available in about 2 - 4 weeks from now. The other option is to purchase Fox Valley Models #3302 Semi Scale Tread 33" wheels. We just want to make it right for all of our customers. Thank you! Matthew


A momentary pause and a to-be-fix problem that we are aware of

We are pausing from shipping our N scale 60-ft Arched / Harriman Baggage-Express cars. So if you didn't get yours yet, we have not forgotten about you. We are taking a pause, so we can be at Trainfest this weekend.

Also, it has come to our attention that the flanges in the inner trucks rubs against on of the underframe ribs of the Harriman series cars - Southern Pacific and Union Pacific only. We are aware of this problem and are working on finding a solution for all of customers who bought a SP or UP Harriman 60-ft baggage-express car in N-scale. The other roads that are not SP or UP are not affected by this problem. In the meantime, hang tight.


Shipping & Trainfest!

Wheels of Time is shipping our N-scale 60-ft Arched and Harriman Roof Baggage-Express cars. We are excited about the upcoming Trainfest Show near Milwaukee this Saturday and Sunday. If we seemed silent lately, it's because we are prepping for that show as well as shipping out goods. We will be announcing and showing our latest rolling stock in N and HO scales - as well as ideas we are working on for your considerations. Come by, visit our booth and say hi to us this Nov. 11th and 12th.
