USA Trains Passenger Cars Coming Back in 2017

USA Trains is bringing back their extruded aluminium passenger cars in several paint schemes early 2017.

USA Trains Extruded Aluminium Passenger Cars

The passenger cars are the first new production in the 1:29 scale “Ultimate Series”  in a long time. USA Trains has been concentrating on the 1:24 scale “American Series” for a while, which are made in the United States. The “Ultimate Series” is made in China.

Shawn Conahey (“USAT G Scale Group” fan site) explains the current situation on Facebook:

USA Trains Ultimate Passenger Cars Arriving 2017. After a long disappearance and delayed production runs the USA Trains Ultimate Series extruded aluminum passenger cars will once again return to stock. USA Trains is expecting delivery of the next production run of extruded aluminum passenger cars sometime in January 2017. USA Trains decided to move production in China to another manufacturer within China. A couple of molds were lost during the move which delayed another production run of the Extruded Aluminum passenger car. USA Trains had been out of stock on these for quite some time.

New ‘Barber S-2 Roller Bearing 70 Ton’ Trucks from Kadee

In their latest newsletter, Kadee announced the arrival of a new 1:29 scale truck for large scale.

Kadee 973 1:29 scale Barber S-2 Roller Bearing 70 Ton Truck

The Barber® S-2 70-ton Roller Bearing truck is a logical development from the original friction bearing truck first introduced in the 1940 Ft.s. Our truck is based on a prototype built in 1967, however, the basic design was first introduced in the late 1950 Ft.s. The sturdiness of the Barber® S-2 truck is evidenced by the forty plus years it has rode the rails to date. A careful observer will spot these trucks in interchange use today. This truck can be used under almost any pre-1970 built 70-ton rolling stock.

Truck Features:

  • All Metal Non-Magnetic 2 Piece Self Equalizing Black Trucks
  • #960 33 in. Smooth Back All Metal Non-Magnetic Black Wheels with Free Rolling Insulated Axles
  • Clip on pads & brake rigging
  • Mounting Adapters for Bachmann, USA Trains, Aristo-Craft, Peco & LGB Included
  • Manufactured and assembled entirely in the U.S.A.

The ‘Barber S-2 Roller Bearing 70 Ton’ trucks are available under article number #973 for $ 49,99 (MSRP).
