The June 2017 set of Micro-Trains releases is comprised of 10 individual cars, 3 sets and one container.

For the individual cars, they come in 7 body styles across 8 road names. Two of the cars are heavyweight passenger cars and the other 8 are freight cars. The heavyweights are a pair of RPO's and the freight is a mixed bag of the usual. Of interest is another pair of Husky Stack container cars from their new 135 body style. Two of the cars are part of collectors' series, the NASA open hopper and the Seaboard Friendship Train boxcar.

The container is a 48' (so it fits in their new Husky-Stack cars) rib-side from Hercules - a specialist in US-Canadian intermodal.

In the three multipacks, of particular interest is the US Army Flatcar 8 pack with a pontoon bridge load. The next is a set of heavyweight passenger cars (5-pack) for the Great Northern and a 3-pack of 56' general service tank cars from ACF.
