To coin a phrase, When it rains, it pours. This March has certainly
favored N&W steam-era N-Scale modelers.

AT LAST, N&W's _CF caboose_ (wood side) is available, coming out as a
laser-cut kit, American Model Builders' item AMB 552. To view, go to
Brooklyn Locomotive Works ( Under "new update log",
click Laser Kit, 26 March.

On the same screen scroll down to 8 March, announcing Broadway Limited's
N&W _H2a 3-bay hopper_, a long-awaited production, available in both 17"
and 24" "N&W" car sides lettering (the latter for stenciling when cars
were shopped / built 21 October 1952 through 1956.)

The CF is sold as a single item, whereas the H2a is available in 6-packs

I do not have the models in hand, but photos in the above references
appear to show accurate work.

To my knowledge, these are the first commercially-produced models of the
two cars.

If the Modeling Committee was involved in the birthing of these models,
take a bow!
