Note: Not all of the items below may be in stock or available but the information is provided for reference purposes.
Please copy & paste the entire description TEXT ONLY (no pictures please) from the item you are ordering into your e-mail.
It will save time and reduce possible confusion in determining what you
really are ordering.
With the quantity of lines we carry it's not possible to memorize all of them.

Be sure you review our terms pages before placing your order:
First: Terms Page One   Then: Terms Page Two  Finally: Terms Page Three

If you place an order, you have agreed to our terms.

Please remember to give your first and last name and the city and state where you live in all your e-mails.

Non-USA customers please include the country.

Wig-Wag Prototype Note:  These were not DRGW exclusive cars.  As can be seen below, some if not all had Return to instructions directing the empty car be returned off line on to the SP.  Handling lumber, these cars could go all over the country.

This is the Fox Valley Models 5283 double door box car with Trainworx etched metal waffling. Models will come ready
to run with Micro-Trains body mounted couplers and Fox Valley Models metal wheel sets.

Wig-Wag Modeling Note:  This is a joint project using the FVM car and applying details from Trainworx.  Please support them in this endeavor so future projects can happen.  If you are wondering about the pricing which might seem a bit of a jump, it is clearly understandable when you consider how much work it is to apply each of those little waffle dimples and then fill them with syrup without a single drop on the car side.

Products bearing DRGW marks are made under trademark license from Union Pacific Railroad Company.

Stock Checks:

Inventory is a fluid commodity.  It changes by the hour (sometimes by the minute). To retain our pricing structure we maintain stock levels designed to turnover 6 times each year. We cannot guarantee stock status till we have an order in hand. All product is subject to prior sale. If we confirm that we have it, and, while we are waiting for the order it sells, you would be upset that we did not hold it.
We used to hold items but learned a VERY EXPENSIVE lesson. When we held items for customers’ orders, the order never materialized 80%+ of the time.  We lost out on the orders placed while the item was on hold.  Also we wasted staff time that could have been used to pull actual orders.
Since we are well known for finding older stock the fact that it may not be on our shelves at this minute does not mean we can’t get it. So, as we spell out on our terms pages, we don’t do it anymore.
You may, however, call in and we will tell you if the items are available and if possible attempt to locate what we don’t have while you are on the phone.
