Gulf, Mobile & Ohio
Micro-Trains doesn't do it often but every once in a while the Oregon-based company announces plans to issue NEW toolings / body styles.
On June 30, 2017, as part of its July 2017 New Products Announcements, Micro-Trains announced it will release 3 new body styles: a 50 foot standard box car with three different door treatments. Each new release will be available in one road name with one road number. These models are based on Pullman-Standard prototypes built in the 1950s and 1960s.
