Rio Grande Models was started back in 1970 for the purpose of producing kits of D&RGW Maintenance of Way cars. Also included was western logging equipment.
These unique models are produced using white metal castings, injected plastic castings, scale wood, etched brass and other parts to give a most accurate model.
Assembly drawings show location of parts and include a short history of the model as well as a painting guide for colors.
These kits are NOT limited but continue to be in production pending availability of outside supplier parts. Our latest kits feature laser cut wood for wood parts and we update our older kits as time presents to using laser cut wood for older kits with strip wood or styrene bodies.
New items are usually announced when they are available to be shipped. We don't maintain a reservation list but advertise any new item in Narrow Gauge and Short Line Gazette magazine.
For direct orders see shipping charges on the order form. Foreign orders will be charged shipping costs. California residents please add 8.25% sales tax.
We always accept recommendations for new kits. We would need photos, drawings and dimensions.
