Specific Item Information: Beginning in the late 1920s, the Northern Pacific Railway owned over 2400 of these steel center silled logging cars. They served system-wide, and were not uncommon on other connecting roads. They hauled big timber from western states, and could be used for telephone poles and trestle piles. This kit gives you the basics for 3 cars: pewter bodies #1 log bunkers #2 log bunkers brake lines Queen posts decals brass etched brake wheels Trucks, couplers, brass wire and silver bead ‘turnbuckles’ are not included.

Road Name History:
The Northern Pacific Railway (reporting mark NP) was a transcontinental railroad that operated across the northern tier of the western United States from Minnesota to the Pacific Coast. It was approved by Congress in 1864 and given nearly 40 million acres (160,000 km2) of land grants, which it used to raise money in Europe for construction. Construction began in 1870 and the main line opened all the way from the Great Lakes to the Pacific when former president Ulysses S. Grant drove in the final "golden spike" in western Montana on Sept. 8, 1883.

The railroad had about 6800 miles of track and served a large area, including extensive trackage in the states of Idaho, Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, Washington and Wisconsin. In addition the company had an international branch to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The main activities were shipping wheat and other farm products, cattle, timber and minerals; bringing in consumer goods, transporting passengers; and selling land.

The company was headquartered first in Brainerd, Minnesota, then in Saint Paul, Minnesota. It had a tumultuous financial history, and in 1970 it merged with other lines to form the Burlington Northern Railroad.

Brand/Importer Information:
GHQ has been a leader in the fine scale model industry since 1967. Over the years, we have dabbled in various model railroading projects. In 1993, we made a concerted effort to enter the N-Scale market. Our first offering was a Mi-Jack straddle crane. From there we went on to produce the finest line of N-Scale vehicles ever made.

Our vehicles have received glowing reviews from many model railroading magazines, including Model Railroader, N-Scale, Model Railroad News, Railmodel Journal, Model Railroading, and Railroad Model Craftsman.

All of the kits that you see listed on our website are available, but these kits are not in constant production. When overall customer interest on kits wanes, those items will be pulled. So, if you see something that you want, buy while it is available.
