Inspiring!

Every so often one of our customers sends us photos of their latest project. Personally, it’s inspiring to see such craftsmanship. Using photographs of the prototype cars, Dallan Schowe modified Wheels of Time baggage cars to make some very specific models for his N-scale 1952 Great Northern Fast Mail train. The first photo shows his technique in slicing the car and then reassembling the body shell for his GN storage mail car. His B&O and IC baggage-express cars followed the same technique. Thanks Dallan for shaing your work with us, so we can all be inspired!

Factory closure

As some of you have heard, Wheels of Time is affected by the factory closure in China. (Wheels of Time Custom Editions trucks are NOT affected by this delay.)  Currently, we don't know the extent of our production delays. We are developing plans, so we can continue production with another factory. We sincerely apologize for this delay and do thank you for your continual support of Wheels of Time. We will provide additional news when it becomes available.
