We are thrilled to add a new line of products, Custom Editions, to Wheels of Time.

Many model railroaders have expressed an interest in special locomotives, railroad cars, and vehicles that are so unique that they are not normally produced. Custom Editions was created in response to this demand and offers high quality limited run models that are impossible to manufacture on a regular production process due to a high initial cost. These models and kits will have the same level of attention to details as our regular production models.

The prices can be higher due to a higher unit price cost. (Custom Editions by Wheels of Time are not available through our distributors.)

Medium/Heavy-Duty Work Trucks HO-scale!

Wheels of Time is delighted to present to re-introduce a series of everyday work trucks used by railroad maintenance-of-way departments and construction companies. With attention to details, we designed these miniature workhorses with the characteristically sculptured hood and cab.  These Series 50 / 60 /80 trucks were built in 1964-1966 for medium to heavy-duty applications. They were powered by a 6-cylinder or 8-cylinder gasoline or diesel engine paired with a 4 or 5 speed transmission and 2-speed rear axle high torque performance.  Railroads and contractors like them because they were economical to acquire and operate, and were reliable. 

We have redesigned our trucks according to the feedback from our HO scale community. So a little bit of re-introduction of our line of trucks are in order.

They are no longer a Shapeways production part. So we are able to give you the following additional benefits:

1) All trucks in HO scale, we have redesigned the wheels and tires to be a separately applied which are included with our kit. Our 3-D printed tires can be replaced with ones from A-Line. And yes, the wheels are designed to still roll freely and are not fixed!

2) We have better control on how the part is printed. Therefore, the quality of print is now much better than Shapeways's Frosted Detail Acrylic in their smoothest setting. This means the clean up is now a snap. There will be less sanding.

3) It's a little bit cheaper to make now. So we are gladly passing on the savings to you!

For those who are waiting for their truck order (through our website), we will refund you the difference between the old price of Shapeways' built product and our new price.

4) Customers from outside of U.S., are now able to purchase these directly from us just like our other Wheels of Time products.

5) For our dealers, ask us for our special sales discount for this particular line.

Continue to order through Wheels of Time PayPal shopping cart (or by sending in a check/money order/cc with our order form), about 15 +/- days before product is shipped.
