Just hot off our factory floor. Our new Wheels of Time  HO scale Straight Tapered Bulkhead flatcar. Noticed the difference from the stepped tapered design. Enjoy!


Lumber load and D&RGW - What do they have in common?

Actually, nothing (except both are made with excellence at Wheels of Time)!

Below is a photo of Mark McLeod's impressive craftsmanship in building Wheels of Time HO scale Lumber Load kit. It looks like real wood! He displayed his models at the recent Bay Area Prototype Modelers meet. Thank you Mark for your excellent work!

We are adding another paint scheme to our N scale 2nd run of PC&F Exterior Post Insulated Boxcars which we are taking pre-orders.: Denver & Rio Grande Western in the sharply painted orange and black. We are doing this after hearing from modelers and dealers. It will be like our first production run, except these FOUR cars will have all new car numbers.

Re-introducing our Custom Editions line of vocation trucks!

Wheels of Time makes a wonderful line of everyday work trucks to bring your model railroad layout alive in HO and in N scales  - under our Custom Editions line. No longer will Shapeways handle our production of these trucks. We just made it better for you in the following ways:  1) Quality of parts is even better, since we have better control over the way it is printed.  Our print quality is smoother than any previously released 3D printed Wheels of Time product. 2) Price drop. We are passing the savings on to you! ** 3) After feedback from our HO scale community, we decided to 3D print the HO scale tires and wheels as separately applied part. As in both, the HO and N scales, the wheels (axle) are designed to rotate freely and are not fixed! 4) International customers can now order directly from us just like our other WOT products. 5) We have added two additional truck types to our exciting line up. Check it out.  HO scale click here.  N scale click here.

Wheels of Time is committed to excellence. History in your hands!  We will have actual production models at the N scale Convention in Salt Lake City. Drop by and say hi.

**For those who are waiting for your order trucks, and have paid the previous price, we will be contacting you and refunding you the difference.
