Our club cars have been a great success throughout the years. All our previous runs are sold out.
We have released our fourth run, modeled after a prototype version.
The proceeds from the sales of these cars have helped the club to make improvements to our layouts and facility.

The first car, TMRR-01, is an HO Master 50-foot Precision Design X71 Boxcar lettered for Conrail. The car has one green door and its road number is 166178. The other door is brown, like the rest of the car. The best information we can come up with is that one of the brown doors on the car was damaged and a quick repair was made with what was available at the local shop, a green door.
We have a prototype photo of the car, but at this point cannot find a photo online. We’re working to get permission from the person who took the photo to use it.

The second and third cars are Guilford/D&H Trainman PS-2 covered hoppers. The cars were used in sand service and traveled off of Guildford for loading. One has a Guilford G and the other a D&H shield. Our understanding is that when Guilford spun off the D&H, the D&H crews were only too anxious to paint out the G and apply the D&H logo. TMRR-02 has the D&H shield and TMRR-03 has the Guilford G. These cars are a follow to the Guilford B&M and MEC sand cars we sold several years ago. (If you are interested in a rerun of those cars with new road numbers, please let us know. We might be able to do that in the future.)
The Guilford/D&H hoppers, TMRR-02, and TMRR-03, are $25.00 each.
