Somehow I discovered a web page for Branford Hobbies "New Haven Terminal"
which offers custom built FL-9's in plastic with Athearn drives, double
flywheels, flexicoil front truck, etc... Check out the web site at
It shows a nice photo. Available in two NH road numbers for 174.99 or
undec (for us PC to Metro-North fans) in kit form for 149.99.
The price may seem a little steep, but I have had little success with
Custom Brass FL-9 performance. Why do somewhat affordable plastic models
always seem to outperform expensive brass? You'd think it would be the
other way around.
Anyway, the big question...has anybody had any experience with the NH
Terminal FL-9, or even heard of it?
