Store: NASG Annual Car Program

This is the new car program started in 2020. The current plan is to offer a car each year by any manufacturer, and have it be related to the location of that year's NASG Convention. The cars will be offered with either American Flyer-compatible couplers and wheels (a.k.a. "hi-rail"), or "scale" wheels and couplers.

Paying Via a Postal Mail Order

If you prefer to place your order for one or more of the cars via postal mail, include a check or money order (in US dollars, drawn against a US bank) for your order total in the envelope. Make the payment out to "NASG" and mail to:

Chuck Kemper
19322 Shady Blossom Dr.
Cypress, TX 77433

Please include the following in your correspondence:

1. your NASG number (found on your NASG membership card)

2. your name and shipping address

3. which car, or cars, you want, and how many of each (scroll down below to see which cars are available)

4. your telephone number or e-mail address (in case we have questions about your order)

Shipping Outside of North America

If your shipping address is not in the United States or Canada, you can postal mail your order (all of the above apply, and you will have to convert your currency to US dollars), or you can conveniently pay online. We use PayPal and they will convert your currency to US dollars at the current exchange rate. All prices shown on this web site are in US dollars. We can ship world-wide. Unfortunately, shipping internationally costs more, so to order one or more of these cars, and shipping outside of North America, do the following:

  1. determine which car or cars you would like to order.
  2. e-mail Chuck to calculate your additional postage.
  3. purchase your items via the online shopping cart below, and enter the extra postage quoted to you when so prompted during check-out.

The 2020 Car: 50-foot Ribbed Box Car

The Minneapolis, Northfield and Southern Railway (reporting mark MNS) was an 87-mile Class I, standard-gauge, shortline that connected Minneapolis, Minnesota and Northfield, Minnesota. The railroad lasted from 1918 until 1986 when it was merged and integrated into the Soo Line. The railroad's nickname is "The Dan Patch Line", named after the founder's favorite horse, Dan Patch.

The 2020 NASG Annual Car is a 50-foot ribbed box car manufactured by American Models. It is available with two, prototypically-correct, road numbers. The first photo is of the final model. For reference, two prototype photos are also provided. The models arrived in the last week of July, 2020, and pre-orders are being shipped now. Active NASG membership required.
