Hi Folks,

Currently available from Microscale is 87-1414, which includes an assortment of NWP and Eureka Southern decals, and 87-1434 with heavyweight passenger lettering.

Once upon a time International Hobbies in Auburn had a great comprehensive set that I've been using for years, but I believe they are out of production. They still exist and have a website, but no longer list them. You could contact him at interhob@gmail.com.

Clover House makes NWP dry transfers, Microscale and Walthers have made them, they can usually be found on eBay.

Do you guys know where I can get some HO-scale NWP decals?

I have been working on modeling the Eureka Southern Daylight. The only car I have been missing is the Lake Pepin. I was looking at Walthers and it looks like they have the Lake Pepin coming up. Ill have to do a re-paint, but it looks like I may have the Eureka Southern Daylight complete:

Anyone ever modeled the Interurban? I'm gathering information so I can plan my next layout. It will be a Marin County based, set between 1925 (ish) and 1935 (ish) so as to include as much variety as possible: narrow gauge, dual gauge, interurban, etc. Rivet counting will not be allowed for maximum historic freedom! Thx, David

Hi Jennifer, thanks for the link.

The label on the box has Howell Day, rubber stamped over M. Dale Newton Co. so late fifties is a good guess.

Thank John.

Hi John,  I'm guessing late fifties?  Very nice kit.  Here's some info I found regarding that manufacturer:

I found this Red Ball kit on ebay, I couldn't resist. Don't know if I well ever build it but I thought it was cool. It is interesting how many manufacturers have don the N.W.P. Over night scheme.

Any body know when this kit was made?

Anybody know the history of NWP MW 850? That's the old water car that sat in Petaluma for years. It was previously an SP MW car, but I don't know the number. I also don't know when the NWP "acquired" it. Any help would be appreciated.
