Non-USA customers please include the country.

Stock Checks:

Inventory is a fluid commodity.  It changes by the hour (sometimes by the minute). To retain our pricing structure we maintain stock levels designed to turnover 6 times each year. We cannot guarantee stock status till we have an order in hand. All product is subject to prior sale. If we confirm that we have it - and - while we are waiting for the order it sells - you would be upset that we did not hold it.

We used to hold items but learned a VERY EXPENSIVE lesson. When we held items for customers’ orders - the order never materialized 80%+ of the time.  We lost out on the orders placed while the item was on hold.  Also we wasted staff time that could have been used to pull actual orders.

Since we are well known for finding older stock the fact that it may not be on our shelves at this minute does not mean we can’t get it. So - as we spell out on our terms pages - we don’t do it anymore. You may - however - call in and we will tell you if the items are available and if possible attempt to locate what we don’t have while you are on the phone.

Please place your order using our SECURE Shopping Cart site: 
http://wig-wag-trains-cart.com/home

If you MUST send an e-mail inquiry - copy & paste the entire description TEXT ONLY (NO pictures!) from the item you are ordering into your e-mail.
It will save time and reduce confusion in determining what you are inquiring about.
With the quantity of lines we carry it's not possible to memorize all of them.

History:

After the SDP40F developed issues in passenger service it was speed limited by some roads.   Amtrak developed the F40PH to replce it utiizing as many of the SDP40F components.  When they were retired from Amtrak service Santa Fe traded several switchers for 18 of the SDP40F.   They were rebuilt w/o Steam Generators and re-classed as SDF40-2.  Later following comments from the engine crews the nose was modified to make it easier to mount while in motion by adding a notch and a handrail around the front.  This is the version being offerred by Kato at this time.

History:

The first all-steel cabooses built for the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad were produced in 1937 by the Magor Car Corporation in Clifton, N.J. Magor, along with St. Louis Car Company and ACF, ultimately built a total of 350 cabooses for the C&O using a similar design. The last were produced in 1949. Through subsequent rebuilding and modernization, many remained in service through the end of regular caboose usage in the 1980s. Cabooses of a similar design were also built for Pere Marquette, Missouri Pacific and Chicago & Eastern Illinois.

Features:

  • Crisply molded body detail
  • Weighted, detailed underframe
  • Equipped with AccuMate® knuckle couplers

PROTOTYPE HISTORY:
Since the beginning of railroading in the United States, tank cars have been an essential part of the freight car fleet.  From their primitive beginnings of barrels mounted to flatcars, tank cars have evolved into complex designs optimized for hauling a
variety of liquids, from corn syrup to anhydrous ammonia.  While tank cars are prolific, most railroads do not own large fleets of these relatively specialized cars, preferring to make use of fleets managed by freight car companies, such as GATX.  One of the larger equipment management companies, GATX can trace its history to the turn of the century, and is well-known for its large fleet of tank cars of varying designs, many of which were built in-house.  One of the more distinctive designs to originate from GATX is the “TankTrain”, which made its debut in the 1970s.  The TankTrain concept was a solution to the problem of long load/unload times for unit train shipments of particular commodities, such as crude oil.  A typical unit train can take significant time to load or unload, with the need for workers to attach the necessary hoses and other fittings to each individual car, coupled with the necessary time to load or unload the commodity from each car.  The TankTrain was designed to significantly reduce this time.  TankTrain cars are interconnected with a large-diameter, flexible hose between each car, which allows the commodity to be siphoned off at a single point at the end of a set of cars while being “pushed” at the opposite end with inert nitrogen gas. Using this method, TankTrain cars can be loaded or unloaded at a rate of approximately 3,000 gallons per minute, allowing a train of 90 cars to be loaded or unloaded in under five hours.  This has the obvious benefit of increased equipment utilization, as well as reduced labor costs, and shorter dwell times at terminals.   Additionally, TankTrain cars were built in various sizes and designs to handle various commodities resulting in a wide variety of TankTrain cars roaming the nations’ rails.  TankTrain cars are typically grouped into interconnected sets ranging from two to thirteen cars, the set size varying upon the car types, commodity, and shipper being served.  One of the commodities routinely handled by TankTrain cars is crude oil, whose viscous nature, and tendency to be shipped in unit train quantities, lends itself well to the TankTrain concept. The most well-known operation using TankTrain equipment was Southern Pacific railroad’s operation of these cars, on behalf of Shell Oil Company, from a loading facility in Bakersfield, California, to a refinery in Carson, California. This operation began in the early 1980s, and proved to be highly successful for Shell, allowing them economical transport of Kern County crude oil to their
refinery. Two trainsets were operated, allowing a continuous load/empty cycle to operate between the load out and the refinery. These trains were comprised of insulated cars with a 23k nominal capacity, grouped into sets of 12-13 cars, with a full train being around 75-78 cars (more or less, depending upon cars that may have been cut out of the individual sets for maintenance). This train proved to be a fairly high-priority operation on the Southern Pacific, mainly stemming from the need to make sure the loaded trains arrived at the refinery on time, in order to prevent production disruptions, as well as to make sure the warmed crude oil (heated as a result of the initial extraction process) does not cool and thicken inside of the car, which would slow down the unloading process.

These all-new Athearn N-scale models represent 23K-capacity GATX TankTrain cars from the 486-number series (built in 1977), and 282-series (built in 1982). Based upon GATX diagrams, as well as photos and field measurements taken from prototype TankTrain cars at GATX’s West Colton repair facility, these new N-scale models faithfully replicate the prototype differences between the two different series’, including variations on the tank saddles, walkways, manways, brake rigging, and transfer piping. While these cars are most closely associated with Southern Pacific, TankTrain sets comprised of these cars have been, and can be seen in operation across the country. Grand Trunk Western, for example, operated TankTrain cars from the 486-series in the Great Lakes region, hauling fuel oil, in the late 1970s. And despite construction of a pipeline that eliminated the need for Southern Pacific’s original routing of TankTrain equipment, a new TankTrain, operated by Southern Pacific successor Union Pacific along the former SP “Coast Line”, operates to this day with many of the same cars, from a loading facility in San Ardo, California, to a refinery in Carson, California.

PROTOTYPE AND BACKGROUND INFO:
The late 1970’s were marked by a supposed shortage of modern useable box cars in the railroad industry. Several rail industry groups argued for and got the Interstate Commerce Commission to approve the concept of incentive per diem box cars. The concept was to establish new, higher per diem rates for modern box cars as an incentive for railroads to invest in new box cars.  Under the ICC car routing rules in effect at the time, cars owned
by operating companies were supposed to be routed back to their owning road as soon as possible or the host road would have to pay demurrage(car storage and handling) charges. This was the cause of a shortage of available cars and not an actual shortage of box cars numerically. As empty cars were required to be routed back to their home railroad instead of being loaded and routed to another destination. Very few small railroads had the available capital to invest in new cars. However, several leasing companies were created to provide the necessary capital for new cars. A typical arrangement between one of these leasing companies and a railroad was that the leasing company would own the cars and lease them to the railroad; the railroad would pay a base lease rate to the leasing company for each car, and a portion of per diem revenue earned by the railroad would also
be turned over to the leasing company. Many smaller railroad companies found it economical to have interchange freight equipment for the first time in their histories under these arrangements. Lumber roads were especially pleased with these arrangements, as they allowed the railroads to provide decent, modern freight cars for their lumber shippers that also happened to produce some additional income while not on home rails.
The box car boom eventually went bust, as the incentive per diem concept was found to be illegal and abolished. With lower per diem rates and a generally lackluster economy, many of the new box cars added to the nation’s rail fleet during the mid- to late 1970’s were no longer needed. The
end result was that many basically brand new box cars were returned to their home roads for storage.
Today box cars still matter to the railroads. Even with modern containerization, box cars have a higher capacity then allowable on US roads. We are finding today, that 1970’s box cars are being rebuilt and put into service for various leasing outfits.

Historical:
The increased volume of coiled steel transportation gave rise to a new purpose-built freight car. Previously rolls of coiled-steel had generally traveled in specially equipped gondola cars. In the 1960’s a lighter type of car emerged specifically for hauling coils of steel in an integral trough. The car type gained popularity and eventually over 17,000 cars were built. Atlas’ model replicates a 42’ design with a distinctive fishbelly side sill.

Features:

  • Crisp painting and lettering
  • See-through walks
  • Removable hood
  • Inside floor detail

One of George's favorite people and incidentally a great musician with one of the most beautiful wives in the world was performing in Saskatchewan when Mr. Hockey passed away.  He honored him at his next concert in Mr. Hockey's home town, Floral, Saskatchewan.
Yes we are talking about Garth.

June 14 - Micro-Trains Line has announced their Weathered & Graffiti deliveries for this month.  First, a 2-pack that originates out of the San Luis Valley of Colorado.   If you come to visit George on the C&TS and don't make a side trip to Center, CO. you are missing one of the iconic shortlines of America.   Not a spin-off, the ~ 30 mile San Luis Central has been serving the same potato & grain farms for generations.   Independent of the D&RGW for it's entire existence yet dependent upon the Rio Grande for access to the rest of the world.   Approximately 25% of the U.S. Potato crop ships out of the San Luis Valley.   The SLC and the C&TS deserve your attention and a visit.

Also coming will be a single CIGX 105-xx-xxx gondola with weathering & graffiti   It is also modeled from the prototype.  These runs will stun your friends when they see them on your layout.   Place your order ASAP if you want these accurate representations of reality.

PROTOTYPE HISTORY
Introduced in the early 1960s the Trailer Train (now TTX Company) F89F flatcar has been a mainstay of contemporary railroading.  A product of Bethlehem Steel Company’s (BSC) Johnstown PA plant over 9000 of these (89’ 8” over the strikers) cars were built throughout the 1960s. Visually distinctive from other long flatcars of their era thanks to their “C” channel side sills these versatile cars were adapted for many types of service and loadings over the years ranging from
Trailer-On-Flatcar (TOFC) to autoracks to structural steel loading.  While the majority went to Trailer Train many were built for various railroads typically for autorack service.  Many were “de-racked” in later years being reassigned and equipped for other service - TOFC vehicle loading pipe service etc.
This Athearn N-scale model was designed from the start to incorporate as many prototype details and variations as possible based upon field measurements and builder diagrams in order to appeal to modelers of multiple eras. You can rest assured of its smooth performance thanks to a heavy die-cast frame for reliable tracking and our N-scale 70-ton ASF Ride-Control trucks.
Operationally these cars are appropriate for any layout set from the 1960s to the present day. The Auto Racks would be fastened to the 89’ flatcar for auto service from Detroit. The Athearn N-scale Auto Rack features a Bethlehem Steel F89FH with a Whitehead and Kales bi-level rack. High level of detail ensures authenticity to the prototype.

Part #: MTL-022 00 191 - Union Pacific® - Road #: 111090 - 40’ Standard box Car w/Plug & Sliding Door
Part #: MTL-022 00 192 - Union Pacific® - Road #: 111163 - 40’ Standard box Car w/Plug & Sliding Door
These 40’ standard box cars with plug & sliding door are painted synthetic red with white lettering and run on Bettendorf trucks. Built in 1963 as part of series 111000-111499 these cars were used by many
railroads to transport oversized freight or finished lumber which required double door cars like these to make loading and unloading easier. The plug door allowed for freight to be stacked against it when
sealed, unlike sliding doors, allowing for increased capacity.
PER DIEM SERIES CAR #5

Part #: MTL-025 00 920 - Atlanta & St. Andrews Bay - Road #: ASAB 7035 - 50’ Rib-side Box Car w/Single Door w/o Roofwalk

This 50’ rib side box car with single door and no roofwalk is painted red/orange with black lettering and runs on Barber Roller Bearing trucks.  In 1906 ASAB was considered a Class 1 railroad which operated in Alabama and Florida hauling lumber and general freight. Running between Dothan, Alabama and Panama City, Florida, the railroad took advantage of the Per Diem program in the 1970s in an effort to modernize its freight cars and compete with larger roads in the region. They were later acquired by The Bay Line in 1994.

This 40’ double-sheathed wood box car with single door is painted white with black lettering and runs on
Andrews trucks.  The Stark Brothers Fruit Company has been around since 1816 and its famous black
bear logo was as common as a famous cola company artwork during the early 1900’s.  Transporting
fruit, fruit products and even wine from Louisiana to Missouri, the company was lauded by the likes
of Luther Burbank for their efforts to protect growers by sponsoring legislation in the 1930’s allowing
them to patent their unique varieties.

Built in 1967 by National Steel Car Co. as part of series 287100-287256, these cars were fitted with rails inside to transport meat across the western provinces of Canada.

for long cross-continental trips, CN also made available parlor cars that were outfitted with the finest accommodations to attract first class passengers.
Part #: MTL-144 00 170 - Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe - Road #: 37 - Name: Chico - 3-2 Heavyweight Observation Car - WITH BALLOON ROOF

WW Note As many know: "Chico" was the name given to the young Native American Boy who was seen on almost all Santa Fe advertisements overlooking the trains as they passed by. Depicted most likely to appear to be Navajo he became almost as well known as the name "Super Chief" to the public as "Axy Dent" was to employees

This 3-2 heavyweight observation car is aluminum with black lettering and runs on 6-wheel
passenger trucks. Built in 1920 as part of series 30-39, these cars were outfitted to be used by
supervisors in remote areas or just to tour the line.

November 1 - Pontification Time: While I hunkered down here in Mogote bivouacked near the RR working on the Rapido announcement (that I hope will be complete in an hour) I was listening to Sirius XM 70's on 7 for Casey Kasem's American Top 40.  As he counted down to Gladys Knight & the Pips Midnight Train to Georgia (their first #1 on 10/27/73) I was once again reminded of Sunday nights spent doing homework and counting down with Kasey.  Then I was troubled by all the consternation the Casem family has gone through since his passing.  I sit here in the cold of the San Luis Valley and pray that they can once and finally find the peace and tranquility that Kasey brought so many of my generation especially as he concluded each week with this phrase: "Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the Stars."  Now that AT40 has concluded for this week I will put in the Garth Brooks DVD from Wynn Las Vegas - the "Blame it all on My Roots" Concert.   What better day can one have?

A Note on Stock Status:
Not all items can be in stock at all times. Due to minimum order requirements from manufacturers and distributors and shipping charges - we "bunch" up re-orders to save you money. Sometimes it takes longer - but we can continue to offer the item at a substantial discount that way.

Confused about Reservations?
Please consider that this is the way we pay the bills and put food on the table. Taking pre-orders allows us to order enough to cover known demand. We attempt to gauge (ok - guess) how many will be ordered after the order deadline plus allow us to have the item in stock for 45-60 days after shipment by the manufacturer.
Sometimes we get it right and sometimes we don't. Occasionally - when an item is not likely to be produced again (D&RGW H-15-44s for example) we order beyond our guess to have a few for longer than that.
