Custom Model Products’ latest release.

Northern California’s Custom Model Products Inc. said recently it is beginning its new line of 1:32-scale rolling stock with a 40-foot flat car, with markings available for the Pennsylvania Railroad, the Reading Railroad, Southern Pacific and Union Pacific.

The flat car, made in brass with stainless-steel wheels, will have “outstanding graphics” and will be painted in red, yellow or brown.

Custom Model, based in Concord, Calif., said that it expects to soon release more rolling stock, including a gondola, a drop-bottom gondola, a covered hopper car, a metal-sided caboose and a tank car, all in brass. The company calls the items “a collector’s piece.”

The flat car will retail for $255 and is available only from Custom Model Products, on the web at http://www.custommodelproducts.com or by calling (925) 687-3500.
