Three new Bachmann 89’ Colorado Railcars

Published by under News Posts

Well I have added three new Bachmann 89’ Colorado Railcar Ultra Domes passenger cars to my inventory… Knik, Kenai, and Kobuk, all named after Alaskan rivers.

These cars where removed from a new Bachmann McKinley Explorer set.
With the first two cars… Chena & Nenana, my Ultra dome fleet is now at Five.

Check out these cars and my other ARR passenger cars on my ARR Passenger Car page.
According to http://www.alaskarails.org/ Holland America has 10 of these Ultra dome cars in there fleet. The missing cars are… Chulitna, Eklutna, Talkeetna, Kashwitna & Teklanika.
I hope that Bachmann will produce these cars in the future. But even it the don’t 5 cars at 89 ft plus my current ARR cars is still an impressive site.

89 FOOT COLORADO RAILCAR FULL-DOME PASSENGER CARS ARE HERE!

Published by under News Posts

Well the good news is Walthers has received their shipment of 89’ Colorado Railcars.

The bad news for me is that my local hobby store orders from Horizon and they have not  received their shipment yet.

So the bad news is that it may be a week before I will receive my order.

The good news, “I like to end with good news” is that it gives me an other week to gather the funds to pay for them.

Well if the truth be known, I have been floating funds for these cars since I first heard Bachman had announced them. Just now that I know that they are on their way I will lock in these funds and be able to commit new funds to other needed purchases.
