We're busy constructing an outdoor G-scale railroad, scheduled to be completed this summer. It is a fun project and we'll soon have the "Big Guys" running at ARM World Headquarters!

OK, some of you have mentioned that you'd like to see our Missouri Pacific Airslide hoppers with numbers applied. beginning now, we'll supply numbered cars. You can select the number series you want(original number series 100-199 and 225-299, or cars renumbered into the 720000-720174 series in 1962), but we cannot take orders for specific numbers.

Did You Know?
Ever see one of our reefers in this scheme? The other side has just the Wabash flag. This is the ART's 1948 paint scheme with one herald per side. We've not offered this version, but there is an easy way to get this short-lived scheme in your ART roster!

Tom Stolte of Oddballs Decals makes a decal set (548) that contains these heralds. The Missouri Pacific buzzsaw with the blue outer circle is the key! You can apply the buzzsaw and flag to one of our 24000 series cars (the first run of ART cars), and change the reweigh date if you like. It's a pretty simple change that creates a rare paint scheme that was applied to cars for only three years (1948-50).
For ALCO Lovers!
We are the proud owners of ALCO S2 740-8, a generous donation by the U. S. Department of Energy from the Amarillo Pantex Plant. It is a typical ALCO, pleased to send satisfying plumes of smoke skyward as it goes about its chores. Click here for photos and history of this interesting locomotive.
White Train
The nuclear weapons transport train was donated to the ARM in 2006. This is a fascinating collection of the cars that were used by the United States to transport nuclear bombs across the country up until the early 1980s.
