Road Name History:
New England Central was born in 1995 when Canadian National sold the Central Vermont to RailTex. RailTex renamed the line New England Central. In 2000, RailTex was purchased by RailAmerica which has since been combined with the Genesee & Wyoming shortline group.

NECR runs 394 miles of track from East Alburgh, Vermont on the Canadian border just south of Montreal south down the length of Vermont, through Massachusetts, to the port of New London, Connecticut. Along the way, they interchange with CN, Pan Am, Norfolk Southern, Vermont Railway, Canadian Pacific, CSX, Green Mountain, Central Maine & Quebec (recently acquired by CP,) Providence & Worcester and several shortlines.

Traffic includes animal feed, chemicals, compressed gas, construction debris, foodstuffs, fuel oil, lumber, machinery, metals, newsprint and other paper, plywood, poles, recyclables, resins, salt, and vehicles. In addition to mixed manifest traffic, NECR provides intermodal service from the Canadian border to the connection with Providence & Worcester at Willimantic, Connecticut. Between 35 and 45 EMD locomotives work the line (Genesee & Wyoming moves locomotives between their various properties as traffic patterns evolve.)

Brand/Importer Information: Micro-Trains is the brand name used by both Kadee Quality Products and Micro-Trains Line. For a history of the relationship between the brand and the two companies, please consult our Micro-Trains Collector's Guide.

Commissioner Information: The N Scale Enthusiast Society (previously known as The N Scale Collector until 2011) was established by Wick Brandon, as a sole proprietorship and was a stand alone company until Wick passed away in 2000. The company has been owned by Micro Trains Line since then.

Wick was the founder of TexNRails and he established NSE right after he sold the pioneering N Scale retailer to the Herz family, and the store moved to Florida. Wick and Lea moved their family from Texas to Bakersfield California, and the entire operation was run from his home in Bakersfield. George Johnsen, the current Chairman, came on board as Associate Editor starting with the third issue of the magazine, and the growth of the organization hasn’t stopped. Wick and George did the first convention in Medford in 1993, and added staff and advisors as the organization grew. Wick held the first auction for the NSE in 1995.

The NSE mission statement reads: “This organization is dedicated to the preservation of the history of N Scale Model Railroading, and the railroads they represent.”

They do:
- Special Run Cars
- Regular Auctions of "collectable" Cars
- Annual Conventions
- Bi-Monthly Magazine
