Good new for you who have been waiting for these.  Just received this.


Thanks for your interest in Hell Gate Models products.

We are pleased to announce that our B60b (standard version) and our BM70k kits are now back in stock and ready for immediate shipment. Sadly, one item - our B60b (messenger equipped version) - remains out of stock and unavailable.

We also now offer our decal sheets for sale and these are in stock as well.

Please note this is a short production run, and it would not be surprising to us if we sell out of some kits quickly. Since you have expressed prior interest, we are letting you know ahead of others. Two days from now notices will go out in various public forums, so we urge you to get your orders in soon.

Thanks - Claus at Hell Gate Models

Not much to do on their website... Like my bayouline.com site.


Hmm... I get a banana
every time someone
clicks on Kiz's web site...


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

Never argue with idiots; they'll drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

LOL... They must have been updating the website and hadn't finished when I first looked at it. Now, they list Products, Ordering, Photos, and so on. I take back what I said about the website.


Hmm... Kiz also took back
the bananas he gave me...

Got my order in. Hopefully Doug and Claus might be willing to forgo shipping in favor of personal delivery.  :D

Just ordered a B60 with 2 sets decals. (Can never have too many). Will run behind LIRR power for horse transport to Belmont Park. I notice horse track names in decal set.

I have a couple of Claus' Pennsy baggage cars from an earlier run, great castings, and with care, they make excellent models. These were at home all over the country in storage mail and express service and regularly made their way to the west coast. Glad to see them rereleased!

I don't know for sure if these ever carried horses, but I do know there was a specific class for horses.
I'm also a big fan of those theater cars.

I thought it was the B47 that was the horse car?  I remember seeing a photo of these cars parked on the wye at Bowie.
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

It is very tempting to pick some of these up for CR era work train service. Very tempting...

Unfortunately, we have VERY limited supply of car kits and we have already sold over half our stock in the first day.  If you would like cars, please do not wait.  I expect they will be out of stock soon. 

Also, due to an unfortunate set of circumstances, the PRR 2D-P5 trucks that come with the B60b kits are no longer available, and these may be the last kits to include them.

Order from the products page at www.hellgatemodels.com

Just ordered mine!  One of each.

Probably will do the B60b as Pennsy anyway.

Wish I'd gotten the messenger-equipped one when it was still around.
