We will need the following information from anyone interested in making a reservation:

Locomotive type (or types) from our list

Road name (or names) from our list

Paint scheme (or schemes) from our “Models” menu

Quantity of each locomotive desired

Era of locomotive desired (for those roads applicable)

Please include desired wheel size (.145 or .114) and gauging (Standard O or Proto48) with your order. Standard O may be ordered with .114 wheels.


We are still able to accept reservations for nearly every model offered on this project, but only for a short time. Our builder has now set a final cut-off date for reservations of May 31, 2017. Any reservations made up until that point must have the first and second deposits to us by or before that date to confirm any reservation. Anyone with a current reservation for this project will be contacted very soon, if not already, to be notified of the requested second installment. This will take some time, as there are a lot of you to contact, so please be patient. If you feel you have been overlooked, please feel free to email with any inquiries.


With the SD45 project moving along to the next phase, we are now accepting official reservations for the SD40-2 project. Anyone who has expressed interest in this project and asked to be put on our contact list will be receiving an email regarding the commencement of this project. We will be posting photos over the next few weeks so that potential reservers can select the road numbers from the available list. At this time, we only need the road name and locomotive type of choice. To move the SD40-2 project along more quickly, we ask that anyone interested in this project please place your reservations as soon as possible so that we can get these to production more quickly. The sooner the requisite number of reservations is reached, the sooner these get to production.

To place an official reservation for the SD40-2 project, we will require a $300 deposit upon reserving along with the information listed at the top of this page. No reservation will be confirmed without the initial deposit. The following deposit will be due just prior to the builder beginning the G.O.D. process.

We are attempting to reach the G.O.D. process point for the SD40-2 project by the end of the summer of 2017. If reservations are sufficient, this project will follow through on the heels of the SD45 project and may possibly be delivered within 12-15 months after the SD45 project if sufficient numbers are achieved quickly enough. If the requisite reservations are confirmed by deposit by the end of August, my builder has promised a pilot model of the premium version plus a standard version for the March Meet in 2018.

Please email with questions or to place a reservation.
