Kato Model Trains Announces Production of ONP 2015 Train
USA is one of the premier model train companies in the world. They replicate in great detail some of the classic trains of both yesterday and today in both HO and N gauge models. This year Kato USA asked us if they could replicate our 2015 Holiday Train in N gauge. This limited edition collector's set will be sold in hobby shops throughout the US, Canada and through Kato's online store during this next upcoming holiday season. The train set will be in a 4 pack starter kit, (Currently the three cars are illustrated here, the engine soon to follow.) Kato announced the ONP 2015 Train Release on June 1st to it's distributors and they received over 200 orders in their first few hours!!! Within the first week they had orders for over 600 units from
the USA as well as Canada. The train set will truly become a collector's item.... and as part of our agreement, a portion of the sales price will go to support ONP's ability to keep wrapping trains in the upcoming years. ONP was also able to secure the ability to sell up to 100 sets to our supporters.
The MSRP for the set is $195.00 (shipping not included) and if you're interested in having us reserve one for you, please
and get your name on our list. Just leave us a message in the message
box of how many units you want to reserve. They should be out sometime in late October and based on the initial response, you may not find them in the hobby shops for very long!!! One last thing, if you're local, reserve a train from us, and pick it up from us, because we're a not-for-profit you save the sales tax AND shipping that you'll otherwise pay at a retail store
.... a good deal all around and remember, the set makes a great Christmas present too!!! We'll have more updates in coming newsletters.... See Kato's website for more details.....
