Bowser Manufacturing has introduced some new, RTR cars that might be of interest to HO scale modelers. The models are in stock and should be at your favorite hobby shop now.
For the longest time, Bowser primarily dealt with locomotive kits from the steam era and primarily they were models of the Pennsylvania Railroad since Bowser was located in the Pa. state. More recently they have expanded to kits and now are doing some preassembled and weathered models as well.
You may recall from a previous post that this past summer, we visited with Lee English & the fine folks there. At that time, he told me about why they had decided to go to some preassembled models to go with their veteran kits. Quite simply, it was the changing expectations of today's consumers. Some people simply don't want to spend the time assembling & painting cars that they buy. To me, that's a lot of the fun but others may feel differently.
The cars look sharp and would be a nice addition to your layout if you happen to either model the particular roads they are available in or the time period that they were used. For more information on Bowser and their line of products, you may visit their web site at: http://www.bowser-trains.com/
Until next time...
