From Inspiration to Finished Product

This is my photo, from a foggy morning in 1986, of Southern Pacific's GP9 “Torpedo”, no. 3195, pulling a matching set of Caltrain painted bilevel commute cars arriving at the Burlingame station on Train No. 30. This line runs between San Francisco and San Jose, California. 

And this is the plastic-injection cavity mold for Wheels of Time’s version of this commute coach. From time to time people ask about the tooling for our products. This is one example: a cavity mold for the roof and undercarriage of Southern Pacific's bilevel gallery coach. 

And, finally, the finished product. Wheels of Time's Southern Pacific bilevel Commute Coach.
