I’d be happy to order a bunch of the 7002 kits.

Just talked to my Intermountain salesman about the X29.

The X29 models were originally made by Red Caboose.  RC also made  reefers, tanks, flats and gons, besides boxcars in HO scale.  For the past several years the Red Caboose products were sold by Intermountain and the product numbers had an RR prefix.  IM has now acquired the RC line and is streamlining the product numbering eliminating the RR prefix.

So the cars below are former RC cars and molds, but now in the IM family.  Some of the road names/paint schemes might be new releases.  Order from your favorite IM dealer.

See many of you Friday at the RPM East show.

The Intermountain Railway Company (

Here are the two PRR versions, each with six road numbers:

I have no connection, financial or otherwise, to InterMountain.
