Custom HO Southern New England Railroad Boxcar

The South Shore Model Railway Club of Quincy Massachusetts has a new 2013 club car for sale with two different logos. 

These cars celebrate the 101st anniversary of the start of construction of  what has become known as “The Titanic Railroad”, the Southern New England Railroad. Owned by the Grand Trunk Railway of Montreal, the railroad was to connect the Grand Trunk-owned Central Vermont Railway at Palmer, MA with the Port of Providence, RI. The Grand Trunk’s president Charles Melville Hayes died aboard the Titanic, and interest in the line died with him.

The American made models represent boxcars that might have been, had the railroad been completed.

SHIPPING: $5.25 for one car; add $1 for each additional car east of Mississippi / $2 west of Mississippi.  (Massachusetts residents please add 6.25% sales tax before shipping costs.)
