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 Union Pacific Railroad (reporting mark UP) is a freight hauling railroad that operates 8,500 locomotives over 32,100 route-miles in 23 states west of Chicago, Illinois and New Orleans, Louisiana. The Union Pacific Railroad network is the largest in the United States and employs 42,600 people. It is also one of the world's largest transportation companies.

Union Pacific Railroad is the principal operating company of Union Pacific Corporation (NYSE: UNP); both are headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska. Over the years Union Pacific Corporation has grown by acquiring other railroads, notably the Missouri Pacific, Chicago & North Western, Western Pacific, Missouri-Kansas-Texas, and the Southern Pacific (including the Denver & Rio Grande Western).

Union Pacific Corporation's main competitor is the BNSF Railway, the nation's second largest freight railroad, which also primarily services the Continental U.S. west of the Mississippi River. Together, the two railroads have a duopoly on all transcontinental freight rail lines in the U.S.
