2019 NKPHTS Model of the Year Now Available!

Click here to view the announcement!

The NKPHTS is pleased to announce 2019’s Model of the Year (MOTY), which is a specially-commissioned run of Accurail’s HO scale 40-foot long stock car model in NKP paint. The model represents single deck stock cars numbers 41000-41014, 41100-41174, and 41200-41273, which ran from 1938 to the mid-1970s (under N&W ownership, but never repainted). 

Accurail has a NKP stock car in their catalog (#4731), but hasn’t run the cars in many years. The NKPHTS had Accurail run a limited number of models with all new, more accurate lettering, and an all-new road number (#41205). 

The price for a single car is $25.95. Click here to purchase from the NKPHTS Company Store! Orders of two or more cars will receive FREE renumbering decals. 

Remember that quantities are limited, so order now before they’re gone!

The car is an easy-to-assemble HO scale Accurail wooden reefer, custom decorated based on a car found several years ago on a farm in Michigan. The car had been used for on-site storage and was extensively photographed by several NKPHTS members. The kit is available in two different road numbers; both the 60221 which was the number of the car located in Michigan and 60157, one of the other cars in the series. The cars are priced at $26.95 each OR get both of them for $50.

Additional shipping and sales tax may also apply.
