Accurail, an Elburn, Ill.-based manufacturer of easy-to-build HO scale injection-molded plastic kits, announced the models it will be offering for “virtual Trainfest.” Accurail has a longstanding tradition of producing custom-run cars for the annual train show, which has been on hiatus the past two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year’s lineup includes Burlington Northern American Car & Foundry two-bay Center Flow covered hoppers ($20.98 each), Burlington Northern Santa Fe Pullman-Standard 4,750-cubic-foot capacity three-bay covered hoppers ($21.98 each), Shasta Water/Southern Pacific 36-foot double-sheathed boxcars ($19.98 each), and a Wisconsin & Southern 50-foot double-plug-door boxcar (Toledo, Peoria & Western patchout paint scheme in one road number, $19.98). Each paint scheme is offered in three road numbers unless noted.
Ordering for the cars will be opened on October 26, 2021. The models will begin shipping on November 17. The cars are available direct from Accurail only. For more information, visit http://www.accurail.com/accurail/trainfest.htm
