The Northern Michigan Railroad Club is back with special run box cars!

Some of you remember our annual special freight car, but when Weaver closed we thought it was over with.  We couldn't find anyone who would make the small runs that we did.  That has changed, as Lionel has agreed to do it for us.  Here is our 2017 offering.

NMRRC2017LS&ICars  

These are 4 different Lake Superior & Ishpeming Railroad PS-1 box cars, with variations in lettering and herald color.  These will be LionScale cars, made in North Carolina, USA.  We are making only 50 of each number.  Final pricing still to be set.  Watch our website at www.nmrrc.org for ordering info.  It should be up soon.  Cars to be produced by the end of the year.

Hi John:

Are these two reefer cars from the Northern Michigan Railroad Club?Bosch & D & M Railway Reefer Car

Are the new cars going to be the same scale and size? if they are Lionel Scale Cars, I believe they will be larger than these.

Can you tell us what ship you are on?  it would be fun to track the ships location, like we track commercial jets.

Is their a tracking link to your ship?

Take care: Gary

Sure are!  The Bosch beer car is from my personal research.  Those are models of early 20th century cars, so they would be smaller than the LS&I cars in real life.  

I am captain of the Lake Guardian,  you can follow it on several websites, though it relies on our transponder, which occasionally is out of range,  We are currently docked in Milwaukee, WI. You can try Boatnerd.com, which has an AIS link.  

Hi John:

Just came from the WWW.NMRRC.ORG, the cars are up but the prices and order information is coming shortly.  I also found your ship. Thanks for the tips.

Right vessel in the pic, but wrong location.  We are docked farther South in the Port of Milwaukee.  

Lionel also has the PS-1 40' Boxcars that are super-detailed and made in China. That version of the PS-1 40' boxcar has not been run in either Lake Superior & Ishpeming or Escanaba and Lake Superior. Should the China built model be produced in the LS&I and E&LS schemes?
