I just ran a check of four online dealers, and Walthers. These are out of stock. Guess if you want one, you pay what the market will bear, or do without. Especially with all those nice Berkshires running around. Three cheers for the limited run/pre order system. Frank

I didn't know that anyone actually modeled the NKP in N-scale...  ;D

Yes there are somewhere, but not in my area though.  ::)

Right now I have 20 locos painted waiting NKP decals.

10 are waiting for N&W decals.

Just right for a bad weather project.

I think I just located the last set of Intermountain NKP boxs set of 12 no. and they are on
the way UPS.  That makes 5 sets total.

Wish someone would make a great wood caboose so I dont have to bash KD/MT booses.
The old ones I have are going for high prices as well and its getting hard to cut these up!

I just gave one away to a friend to run with his LL/Walthers Berk as he couldn't fine them anymore (Atlas are ya listening),should have charged the E Bay rate, naw this guys a friend,but hey its mighty tempting execpt I still need my other one to go with my NKP Locos. Another closet road I like so I have some PA's several passenger cars, some Geeps a LL Berk and several old Rivarossi ones including the Blue American Railroads set with the 759.                                                                                                          Nate Goodman (Nato).
