Manufacturer’s Notice: 9 post well car grab bar, handrail, steps bent
Oct. 30, Update - We have sent replacement parts to all that have requested them, and distributed new inner-box blister packs to distributors and dealers.
If you need any replacement parts for the first run NSC 9-post well car -please contact us.
Thank You for supporting JTC’s first freight car, the NSC 9-post well car. We have been notified of some packaging issues with the protective blister not being protective enough. This has caused some cars to arrive with bent hand grabs/steps on the etched metal part. We have ordered replacement etched parts from our factory and will make them available when we receive them. We had 2 of the five we kept for JTC’s ‘vault’ have the damage. We were able to bend them back into place with a bit of care. We designed/made the ends out of etched metal (stainless steel) to allow the end parts to ‘bend’ instead of breaking like plastic during normal handling – The Irony!
The entire etched walkway piece can be removed (carefully), and discarded, HOWEVER - it may be worth it (easier) to bend the existing ones back into place, and touch them up or weather it. We will provide more details soon. The etched metal was pre-formed before being installed on the car. We will experiment the process of etched metal removal and report back...
The blister is being re-designed to better protect the ends, for the next run.
Please contact us via email with any concerns: firstname.lastname@example.org
We apologize for the inconvenience, and again Thank You, for your support.
The JTC Team
Jacksonville Terminal Company LLC (JTC Model Trains) was established in November of 2017 by Two N scale modelers who have a passion to deliver Quality products to the model railroad industry. We are a Family owned business based in the U.S.A., established upon several core factors. The First driving factor behind the business is to deliver high quality products, as close to prototypical as ‘reasonably possible’, while being competitive in nature. Second factor is that the modelers MUST be the beneficiary of the JTC products, to enhance Modelers efforts in creating their miniature worlds. Third , JTC likes to produce models that have not been made before, and that also are more prototypically accurate products, than are currently on the market. JTC wants to deliver new products to modelers regularly to keep the modeler interested and active all year round enjoying this wonderful hobby of Model Railroading. Finally, JTC desires to be recognized and known for delivering high quality products, not just pre-orders, that are many months away, or fallen concepts. We hope you enjoying exploring the many different schemes and details available on our unique New Toolings. Thank You.
