N scale 77-ft S.P. Chair Car

Be sure to take a break from your work and pre-order our new 77-ft S.P. Chair Car kit in N scale today! Here is a photo of the close up of the sides painted for post-1958 general service. This car was assigned to systemwide use such as on the Del Monte - Espee oldest named train. Painting the scarlet red stripe is a lot easier than applying a red stripe decal. We think it came out quiet nice. We used Scotch Advance Edge-Lock Blue paint tape available from your local hardware store to masked the stripe.

 The slight distortion in the photo is due to the fisheye effect from our closeup lens.

New N scale announcement!

Wheels of Time is pleased to announce an all new N scale PS 1937 77-ft Chair Car for service for City of San Francisco, Golden State, Cascade and General Service. These highly detailed kits are designed with the modeler in mind. Made in U.S.A. Take pre-orders now for a early Nov. delivery date.

The highly detailed passenger car sides, roof and complete underframe/interior have tabs and slots, and pins and holes connections. This makes it easy to assemble and glue parts together using super glue. This Wheels of Time design completely eliminates the need to purchase a core kit. In addition, the kit includes a fully built miniature replica of the prototype underbody equipment, so you don’t need to guess where things might be located! The interior has the proper look for the reclining seats with arm rests instead of a chunk of plastic. The standard width diaphragms are patterned after Southern Pacific’s shops modification to the original full width diaphragms. We even included on the “B” end of the car, a Gyralight warning light which was S.P. practices for the end of the train operation. It’s like the real thing! The models are designed to be fitted with Kato truck-coupler assemblies. The result is that the modeler will receive a very highly accurate and detailed railroad specific passenger car with minimal work that you can be proud of! Go here for more details.
