River Raisin’s Southern Pacific S12 and more…

River Raisin Models Southern Pacific S12It looks like at least one of River Raisin Models’ latest announced projects – the Southern Pacific S12/S14 – is a go. I put in my deposit on an S12 last year and for awhile it looked like there wouldn’t be enough reservations for the project to go forward. I guess they finally got enough reservations though, because according to their web site it IS going to be imported. That’s great news if you’re an SP fan, but it gets even better. Besides the S12 and S14, they’re also going to import the Southern Pacific M4 Mogul (2-6-0) in 3 different road numbers with 5 total variations. Besides the SP models, they’re also offering this locomotive painted but unlettered with a coal tender which is great news for non-SP modelers who need some small steam locomotives on their layout.

So far this year is shaping up to be a pretty good year for S Scale. Lionel seems committed to expanding their American Flyer offerings, MTH is bringing back the S Helper Line, and now a new brass locomotive (Southern Pacific to boot!) from River Raisin. Oh, and I found the Conoco Dolores Oil Depot on eBay – should be here next week:) Happy S Scaling…
