MTA (NYC) Subway Cars In N/Z Scale?

Post by Radioguy » Sun Feb 04, 2018 3:07 pm

I've looked into it a bit, and see Island Model Works and Imperial Hobby Productions do small run resin shells (and on shapeways - all 3D prints?) in N, but I wondered if any manufacturer were licensed currently to make painted and decaled cars or sets (powered/unpowered) in N or smaller. The only thing I saw anywhere was mention of Red Caboose possibly having sets running $300, but I think that might be HO, and I still have no clue as to the maker.

Ideally, I was interested in the current-day fleet (R-160, etc) in N or Z. Maybe MTA MOW, NY&A, and related stuff too. Most of what I see in larger scale tend to be of older cars (still lovely, but not as desirable for me).

I was also wondering who here might run these in those scales, and if there's any pictures/video online? I'd love to see.

Thanks. :)
