    Today at the Amherst Railway Society Railroad Hobby Show in West Springfield, MA River Point Station announced two Ford F-350 models will be produced in N scale. One model will be of an F-350 utility truck, and the other will be of an F-350 crew cab pickup.

    The prototypes for these models were first produced for the 1992 model year, and continued in production into the early part of 1999. The River Point Station F-350 crew cab pickups and utility trucks are due in part the to the poll the N Scale Vehicle Association took at the N Scale Enthusiast Convention last summer in Salt Lake City. I want to extend my thanks to all who participated in the poll. It gave Ron the encouragement he needed to produce the models! Photos of the test shots of the body molding are shown below.

    We now have the first examples of the River Point Station Ford F-350 models that were assembled from the test shots of the tooling. The assembly and painting of the models was done by a non-professional, and it definitely shows. However, considering these were assembled from test shots of completely new tooling, we can expect the models produced from the finished tooling will be superb!

    And to make things a little more interesting, the new Fords were photographed with some existing N scale Ford models.

    The RPS F-350 utility will come with end-user applied photoetched West Coast style mirrors.
