    Back by popular request, we’re announcing the next run of Museum Quality™ HO Scale GTEL 8,500HP “Big Blow” Turbines. In our continuing effort to push the boundaries of realism in model railroading, our “Big Blow” Turbine model sets the bar with walkway lights, prototype wheel sounds, etched metal, and applied detailed parts down to the warning labels. As always, the models include railroad AND road number-specific details making our model just as legendary as the prototype. In fact, we’re offering unique versions that have never been done before in HO Scale*.

    *First time in plastic
