Our new ‘Friendship Train Series’ will feature 12 prototypical freight and passenger cars that were part of the American Friendship Train in 1947. The Friendship Train collected food donated by Americans in cities all across the U.S. to be shipped to the people of France and Italy who desperately needed help following the end of World War II. Without involvement of the government, the food was loaded, transported by rail and truck and shipped overseas for free due to the generosity of the American people and their businesses.
There were over 250 Friendship Train box cars that travelled through eleven states from Los Angeles to New York City and ultimately to France and Italy. Many of the cars had large banners and placards on the sides and crates individually labeled so there was no mistaking where the food came from. This series will not include a locomotive. Contact your dealer to place your order today.

This series will feature 10 prototypical 40’ boxcars that were decorated by Great Northern with experimental paint schemes in 1956. The cars were put into service in the GN system and some schemes were approved for future use. Due to some of the bright and gaudy schemes, this experimental group of cars were dubbed the ‘Circus Cars’.
Don’t miss these one-of-a-kind prototypical cars, contact your dealer to reserve yours today.

Welcome to the newest N scale coupler from Micro-Trains, the ‘True-Scale’ Coupler! This new coupler is specifically designed for accurate scale size, more prototypical features, proper scale-distance between cars and no slinky effect when operating. This easy-to-assemble and install body mount coupler consists of a draft gear box, lid, knuckle, lip shank and a separate plug-in air hose. There are no springs. They are uncoupled manually using a sharp toothpick or a needle and can be joined by simply pushing the cars together. These couplers are to scale so they will not couple with existing larger N scale couplers. For those who have Magne-Matic or other coupler systems, you can use a conversion car (like the ones below), which comes with a Magne-Matic installed on one end and a True-Scale coupler on the other.
For more information about this new coupler, watch the video on our website for a step-by-step demonstration of how to assemble and install the True-Scale Coupler!
