Pictured below is the Special Run car, a 52 Foot Gondola from ExactRail, that exhibitors received at the Amherst Railway Society Train Show

As exhibitors at the Amherst Railway Society Railroad Hobby Show in West Springfield, MA this past January, TroveStar received a copy of this model from ExactRail. We believe it is interesting that the ARS turned to ExactRail when they had to make a choice as to who would produce this Thank You item. Every year the ARS does a large special run in N Scale for the exhibitors who make this event special. In 2016, they did not provide this *bonus* for their exhibitors and there was much grumbling, so they felt that they had to do something special in 2017. As result, they selected the Thrall 52 foot 2743 cubic foot Gondola car from ExactRail. We were very pleased with the selection as it is an excellent model with body-mount MTL couplers and excellent detail and weight.
