BTC-4/CTC-4 MBTA Bi-level Commuter Rail Car

Pictures of the first production models of the Kawasaki Bi-level coaches are posted below. They are being shown at the shows this year. If you have any interest whatsoever, plan on taking a look at them. We will be accepting orders for the coaches as well as the cab cars to be produced later.

The final revisions to these models include one piece laser cut Acrylic sides incorporating the windows. The HVAC units on each end of the roof, the car ends, the body lifting loops and the end air intakes on the 900 series cars are custom cast resin parts. Roof fans as well as custom Stainless etched roof vents by BLMA are used. Custom Micro Scale decals are used in the decoration of these cars. A multi-coat Floquil finish is used.

The Bi-level cars will be built to order by reservation. You may choose car numbers according to the list below.

COACHES QUANTITY BUILT
700-749 50 1990
750-766 17 1997
767-781 15 2001
900-932 33 2005

Note: 700-766 are pretty much identical.

 

 

 

The first production models of the 700 class coaches and the 900 class coaches will be shown at the shows below. We will be able to take your reservations for one or more at that time. Let your friends know so that they can come and seethe cars also.
