EMD SD60 Diesel - Introduced in the mid-1980s, the SD60 and its four-axle sister, the GP60, were the first EMD diesels to incorporate computer technology and onboard diagnostics to aid the engineer. Under the hood was a new 16-cylinder model 710 prime mover rated at 3800 horsepower.  continue reading EMD F-3 ABA Diesel - When the prototype railroads began to dieselize in the 1940s, model train manufacturers soon followed, recognizing that boys wanted models of the newest trains they were seeing on real railroads. One of the initial toy train forays into dieseldom was a Lionel replica of the best-selling diesel of the day.         continue reading

Northern Pacific F-3 Passenger Set - Recognizing that EMD and the railroads were anxious to publicize their modern motive power, General Motors, the Santa Fe Railroad, and the New York Central helped share the cost of dies for the original models in exchange for having their names on engines that appeared on virtually every boy's holiday wish list for years.                   continue reading Norfolk Southern F-3 Passenger Set - To this day, the F3 diesels of the late 1940s and early 1950s are recognized as some of the best toys ever produced. Virtually full O gauge scale models, they were tremendously dependable, highly detailed for their time, and terrific pullers.           continue reading

Santa Fe F-3 Passenger Set - In the end, it seems the Santa Fe got the best deal, as its red, yellow, and silver "warbonnet" F3s remained a popular fixture on model railroad locomotives longer than any other railroad livery.                   continue reading 40' Steel Box Car - The 40’ steel box car so familiar to model railroaders was a product of the 1930s. Wood box cars, which were built into the World War I era, and early steel cars were largely non-standardized, with details varying from railroad to railroad.           continue reading

4-Bay Cylindrical Hopper - Until the advent of the covered hopper, bulk commodities like grain and cement were packed in sacks and loaded into boxcars. Loading and unloading was a tedious, time-consuming affair.                   continue reading Flat Car with Bulkheads - Built for loads that comprise a large number of heavy pieces, bulkhead flat cars provide the security of strong end walls to prevent a load from shifting. Common cargos include utility poles, structural steel, pipe, steel plate, and packaged lumber.           continue reading
