    Operator trains are built for modelers who enjoy running high-quality, realistic trains at an affordable price. Designed from builder’s drawings and photographs, Operator models have fewer factory-applied parts and simplified printing. Operator 5188s share a common body style which means added savings for our modeling budget. With quantity buy pricing, you can also save $2 per car when you order 6+ Operator 5188 Covered Hoppers.

    For added versatility, super-detail parts are available separately.

    Preorder your favorite roadnames and paint schemes by Monday, September 27th for delivery this summer 2022. Preorder now.
