The NMRA (BR) convention is approaching and I am putting a lot of time into getting my new modules ready so this week’s post will be short. But I do have some new releases to tell you about. Back in June I shared with you my designs for some more brass Additions; you can find the post here. These are now ready for release and you can find them in the shop under Etched Metal Additions.
There are two new sets of brass Additions available. The first is a set of replacement handrails and details for N Scale EMD GP7 & GP9 Locomotives. These were originally designed to replace oversized handrails on older Atlas/Kato locomotives. The older locomotives also had round handrail stanchions which were incorrect. EMD made them from channel sections which has been represented in the new brass Additions. This set can also be used for most other GP Locomotives as the shape of the GPs is fairly constant and the handrails can easily be adapted.
The fret includes a full set of replacement handrails, four sets of MU Hoses, two Sinclair antennas, three rear view mirrors, four windscreen wipers, two sun visors, seven sets of grab irons, one grab iron drill plate, two drop steps for the end handrails and two cab doors so they can be modeled in the open position.
The second set of Additions is a pair of rear view mirrors designed to fit N Scale GE Genesis Locomotives, in particular the P42 made by Kato.
Both sets have been tested and I will have some images of those locomotives to share with you soon.
It’s now time to get back to my modules. Once they are a bit more presentable I will be sharing more of the progress with you as well.
