Yes folks, it's the Borden "butterdish" milk car. These cars enjoyed a surprisingly long life first carrying milk, and then running chemicals around the country.

These 1" scale cars will feature all-new proprietary detail parts cast especially for this model. The unique passenger style trucks will also be created to afford you the most detailed model possible, and will feature smooth running hidden roller bearings.

Available only RTR and fully painted in the scheme of your choice. You will be contacted and allowed to choose from a variety of paint schemes and liveries.

Now accepting deposits at our online store. This is a limited run release, so don't miss out!

Thanks for looking.

A little locomotive with 4 wheels on the track is a lot more fun
than a 1/2 finished one with 16 wheels on the bench!

What are you using for an underframe? When I sourced drawings and plans for my 1:87 scale model in 2019, I couldn't find detailed drawings showing the actual underframe so I used an Express reefer frame.
