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.
