Ready to Run !



Click on Video link below to see these amazing new "HO" mP54 cars, note the lst car on the consist is the new Combine car.






Fantastic Built in Lighting Included with each car.

     

Above: 3/4 Angle view of car. Since these cars were called the "dim cars" by commuters due to poor lighting we trimmed down the lighting to look authentic. We know these photos are a bit grainy, but had to be taken in a dark room. But here are some of comments we got when exhibiting these cars in a darkened shadow box at the Hartford NMRA Convention.

     

"Wow" ... "Terrific".... Boy, you nailed the lighting on these cars"... so just ask anyone you know that might have been at the NMRA show and saw these cars in our booth...

     

Full Side view of car.

     Here is first view of the mP54 Combine Car. This is of the Santa Fe version. The Santa Fe bought cars used from the Pennsy, and then covered over the porthole end windows with sheetmetal, but you could still see the porthole area.


Here are the rest of the Coach Paint Schemes..

Unlettered Coach, Black Roof, Post-War Pennsy Tuscan Red sides and ends, black underbody.

Pennsy Pre-War II Coach, Brown Roof, ligher Pre-War Tuscan sides and ends, black underbody, olive trucks and underbody details.

Pennsy Post-War II Coach, Black Roof, Post-War Pennsy Tuscan Red sides and ends, black underbody.

Boston and Maine, Black Roof, B&M Maroon Sides, black underbody. These were ex-PRR cars, bought from PRR used.

Long Island Coach, Black Roof, Post-War Pennsy Tuscan Red sides and ends, black underbody. These cars were built from PRR plans for the Long Island and some other sold used to Long Island. Long Island put sheet metal over end portholes on many of the cars.

Norfolk & Western Coach, Black Roof, N&W Tuscan Red sides and ends, black underbody. These were ex-PRR cars, bought from PRR used.

Penn-Reading Seashore Lines Coach, Black Roof, PRR Post-War II Tuscan Red sides and ends, black underbody.

Santa Fe Coach, Black Roof, Pullman Green sides and ends, black underbody. These were ex-PRR cars, bought from PRR used. Santa Fe just put sheet metal over end portholes.


See the amazing underbody detail !!.

Underbody consists of 14 different pieces make up underbody including real wire to simulate air lines.

Coupler covers removed so you can see couplers can rotate on wide radius, so cars will run smoothly on 18" inch radius (maybe even down to a 15 inch radius at slow speeds.)

About the Pennslyvania mP54 series Steam Era Coaches (non-powered):

     When we started this project we were surprised to find, that while the mP54 series of cars on the Pennsy were one of the largest classes on the Pennsy system for over 50 years, no one had ever made them in plastic. And being mid-westerners and basicly "western railroad" orientated we had to educate ourselves on the Pennsy passenger fleet. What we found out was that while there were over 1,000 cars in the mP54 catagorie(s) there were a huge number of sub-classes. We appreciate all the help that Al Buchan, Bob Johnson,and Bruce Smith of the Pennsy Historical Society gave us, as well as Tom Thompson for his help on the B&M mP54 car that were bought used from the Pennsy. And of course a "Thank You" to Jack LaRussa who suggested this project in the first place.

     The Con-Cor models follows the plans supplied by the Pennsy Historical Society for the mP54/mP54C and mP54T 72 Seat Steam Era Coaches. Some of the early group of cars dated from the 1911/12 ear. But the Pennsy still was building cars of this class well into the 1930's. A lot of these cars survived into the early 1950's and a few into the 1960's having undergone various trips to the shops for reburbishing over time.

     These "Steam Era Coaches" were pulled behind a wide variety of Steam locos's, GG-1's and other Diesels and Electrics from their introduction before World War I, and well into the 1950's and early 1960's.

     As discussed above, there was a wide variety of classes and sub-classes so our car might not match "identically" a photo you might find in a book, or on the web. In fact some of the photos we have found have been mis-identified anyway. Some cars were modified as time went by, so the way they looked one day, was not the way the same car looked a few weeks later, although the Car Number remained the same. (Although in the Pennsy records the cars' Classification number might have changed.)

     Other railroads with mP54 cars: While the mP54 series originated on the Pennsy, the Long Island Railroad had similar cars built new for them. Pennsy sold off used mP54 cars at various times to other railroads, so the roadnames you will find below are not "made up". The Norfolk and Western, Boston and Maine, Erie, Susquehanna, and surprisingly even the Santa Fe bought used mP54 cars from the Pennsy. And this is not the entire list.

     One last thing we discovered, was that while everyone usually thinks of Pennsy Steam Era cars to be "Just" Tucsan Red with black roofs, according the PRR Historical Society the correct "Pre-WWII" paint scheme for these steam era cars was Brown Roof, Light Tuscan Sides, Olive Trucks, gold lettering. So we will be offering both Pre-war and Post war paint schemes. Bruce Smith of the PRR Historical Society was kind enough to give us paint sample references. It would be OK to match both paint schemes on your layout of course, as once the PRR started to change over the paint scheme, they did not go back and re-paint all the older cars until they needed repairs of some kind.

A Word about the Pennsy "MU" (Motorized) mP54 cars:

     Con-Cor is doing reserach on the mP54 "MU" powered cars. We have decided to move ahead with the Powered "MU" units, so watch our website for updates as the project progresses. We are looking for 2011 delivery on the powered "MU" units.

     Please do not Email us asking for updates on the status of this version, as we do not have the time to answer individual Emails, we will announce to everyone at the same time the status of the "powered" cars in the future on our web site, and magazine advertising.


As with all very complicated projects, this delivery date is only an educated projection. Some delay may occur on any project of this size and complexity.
