The Northern Michigan Railroad Club is pleased to announce preorders for our latest club car offering!

They are MTH Premier 36' Woodside reefers

Two offerings in two available road numbers. The Rheingold reefer is prototypical from Michigan's Keweenaw in the heyday of copper mining in this area of Michigan.  The Short's reefer celebrates Short's brewery in the greater Traverse City area. This car suggests a "what if" Short's was brewing over a hundred years ago.  Truly a big celebration of Michigan beer!

To order please complete one or both of the attached forms and mail or email as directed.  NMRRC will send you an email when cars arrive so you can pay for your order.

Interesting and attractive cars,  but the Rheingold prototype reefer existed, and the Short's did not?

That's correct.  The Rheingold reefer is based on a prototype and the Short's reefer is a fantasy scheme honoring a current Northern Michigan brewery.

Here's some interesting information on Rheingold, including a picture of one of the prototype cars, of which there were only 4 or 5 used to transport the beer in the local area. Short's is a small craft brewery that didn't start making beer until 2004.

I had placed an order for the cars through a dealer but after a phone call, I just found out that it was a mistake on their part and that I had to order through the club.  I just emailed my order and hopefully it will be accepted.

Shouldn't be any problem getting your cars. They are checking emails daily.
