ATSF N Scale Models produces typical Santa Fe N-scale kits, used by the railroad between the 1940’s and 1970’s, not available from commercial N scale suppliers.
Using 3D computer design, 3D printing and etchings, signature models are offered through this site. Most kits contain resin castings (from 3D printed masters) but in some cases 3D prints are the only/best solution, affecting the price. Almost all parts are also available through Shapeways but that comes at a price (not my decision) and the necessary etchings are only available through this site.

The kits contain all the main parts to build a true to life N-scale replica of the prototype. Every model railroader with basic to average skills and a workbench with the normal, usual tools (small motor tool, small files, hobby knives/scalpels, tweezers, caliper gauge, magnifiers, time and patience) should be able to make a great and accurate model. The challenge could be to super detail yours. On the internet information on the prototypes, building techniques and suppliers of super detailing parts is available (see list below). The signals are finished models, ready to be connected to a 3V DC power supply.
All pictures in ENGINES/CARS are unpainted models. Pictues of finished models can be found in PICTURES.
