My friend Pierre Oliver shared photos of the finished sample models for a new resin kit coming for S scale enthusiasts. Pierre and his colleagues at Yarmouth Model Works* are making their first foray into 1:64 by offering two versions of their first S scale kit, covering some 5,700 boxcars built for the Canadian National Railways by National Steel Car of Hamilton, Ontario.
This is the early version of the car, with a flat roof and the brake reservoir located perpendicular to the sills:
And here is the later version of the car, with raised panel roof and the brake reservoir located parallel to the sills:
As I have noted in a previous post about these cars, the kits are coming soon – definitely before the end of the year. Ordering information, including pricing, will be posted on the Yarmouth Model Works website when they’re available. I know I’ll be buying a few of each for my layout!
(Note that unless stated, the kits on the Yarmouth Model Works website are in HO scale)
