Specific Item Information: This River Point Station N Scale 1992 Ford F Series Crew Cab Pickup and Service Truck Set includes two vehicles, an F Series Crew Cab Pickup with single rear wheels and an F Series Service Truck with utility body and dual rear wheels. The vehicles feature a finely detailed molded ABS plastic body and authentic decoration. Each has painted or low-luster plated simulated chrome-finish grille bumpers and wheels as appropriate. Additional features of this set include window glazing and interior detail, and a set of modeler-applied etched stainless steel mirrors for the service truck. This 1992 Ford F Series Crew Cab Pickup and Service Truck Set is part of the line of River Point Station N Scale vehicles.

Model Information: Introduced in 2019. This is River Point Station's first venture into N Scale. These models feature: Injection molded ABS, Accurate designs and details, Officially licensed, Optional accessory/detail packs, and Reduced-lustre chrome details.

All models are non-operating, highly detailed, and factory assembled. Models feature precisely molded ABS plastic components, authentic paint, and either painted or reduced-luster plated, simulated-chrome finish grille, bumpers, and wheels, as appropriate. Models include tinted clear window inserts and pre-colored interiors, as well as a detailed chassis. To facilitate interior detailing, major assemblies are held together by friction fit, and may be carefully disassembled.

In December 2020, River Point Station announced that they will leave the N scale market, just after one run, and in April 2021, Atlas announced that they acquired the tooling of the N scale vehicles from River Point Station. A first run of these vehicles under the Atlas brand was announced in October 2021.

Prototype History:
The Ford F-Series is a series of light-duty trucks and medium-duty trucks (Class 2-7) that have been marketed and manufactured by Ford Motor Company since 1948. While most variants of the F-Series trucks are full-size pickup trucks, the F-Series also includes chassis cab trucks (flat bed) and commercial vehicles (box van). The Ford F-Series has been the best-selling vehicle in the United States since 1986 and the best-selling pickup since 1977.

In 1999, to bridge the gap between the pickup line and the medium-duty trucks, the F-250 and F-350 became the Ford Super Duty vehicles; considered an expansion of the F-Series, the Super Duty trucks are built on a distinct chassis with heavier-duty components. As of the 2017 model year, the F-Series includes the F-150, the Super Duty (F-250 through F-550), and F-650 and F-750 Super Duty medium-duty commercial trucks. The most popular version of the F-Series is the F-150, now in its thirteenth generation.

Through the use of rebadging, Ford has marketed the F-Series through all three Ford divisions in North America. From 1946 to 1968, Mercury sold the Mercury M-Series in Canada; during the 2000s, Lincoln sold the Lincoln Blackwood, replaced by the Lincoln Mark LT.

Road Name History:
The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway (reporting mark ATSF), often abbreviated as Santa Fe or AT&SF, was one of the larger railroads in the United States. Chartered in February 1859, the railroad reached the Kansas-Colorado border in 1873 and Pueblo, Colorado, in 1876. To create a demand for its services, the railroad set up real estate offices and sold farm land from the land grants that it was awarded by Congress. Despite the name, its main line never served Santa Fe, New Mexico, as the terrain was too difficult; the town ultimately was reached by a branch line from Lamy.

The Santa Fe was a pioneer in intermodal freight transport, an enterprise that (at one time or another) included a tugboat fleet and an airline (the short-lived Santa Fe Skyway). Its bus line extended passenger transportation to areas not accessible by rail, and ferryboats on the San Francisco Bay allowed travelers to complete their westward journeys to the Pacific Ocean. The ATSF was the subject of a popular song, Harry Warren & Johnny Mercer's "On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe", written for the film, The Harvey Girls (1946).

The railroad officially ceased operations on December 31, 1996, when it merged with the Burlington Northern Railroad to form the Burlington Northern & Santa Fe Railway.
