Welcome to Shawmut Car Shops July 2020
Since Aristocraft is leaving the large scale scene, I will continue to paint what is available. The price of item will depend what it costs me to get the piece.
I have made changes to the Engine page for the NS Heritage Locomotives.
Thank you for having an interest in what SHAWMUT CAR SHOPS can do for you. SHAWMUT is NOT a Store, but a Custom painter / builder/ decal maker. I hope you will find the following pages worthwhile. I custom build, paint, and letter 1:20, 1:22.5, 1:24, 1:29, 1:32 G scale cars and locomotives.
ALL PRICES INCLUDE THE PIECE UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED.
A 22 page catalog is available for $ 7.00. The $ 7.00 is refundable on original orders $ 50.00 or more, NOT including shipping.
However, because of the virus, I have suspended making custom decals until supplies from Japan have improved. Right now the supplies are coming by boat that takes months to my supplier and the price has tripled.
I can however cut vinyl lettering using my computer and Benn Coifman’s fonts (www.railfonts.com) . I do make vinyl lettering as small as 1/4″ high, but as large as 9 inches high. Vinyl are available in all colors. All pieces in the catalog show our lettering that we have custom designed for the pieces SHAWMUT creates. Vinyl lettering would work great on live steam.
Shawmut has custom painted / decaled almost 3500 cars & locomotives since 1996. We specialize in custom built pieces that are not available commercially such as pickle cars, butter dish milk cars, camelback steam locomotives, custom diesels, CF7, gas electric motor cars, coil cars, express reefers, Russell snow plows, milk cars, and other neat cars for modelers, industry, and museums.
SHAWMUT IS LICENSED BY BOTH UNION PACIFIC AND CSX.
NOTE : SPECIAL CUSTOM BUILT / REBUILT ITEMS MAY RESULT IN A SLIGHTLY HIGHER PRICE THEN QUOTED, IF THE TIME / MATERIALS TO BUILD THE ITEM COST MORE THEN THE ORIGINAL QUOTE, AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE MAY BE REQUESTED.WHEN THE PIECE IS FINISHED.
I try to give an accurate quote, but sometimes it takes longer than anticipated to achieve the product the customer desires as the piece is a one of kind.
Camelback steam locomotives are made in 4-6-0 configurations. Even though Piko has come out with a excellent 0-6-0 and 2-6-0 camelback, you may wish to have a larger camelback built. I use the 10 Anniversary version of Bachmann’s 4-6-0 as a starting point. While I have not tried it, it maybe possible to build a 2-8-0 camelback from a Bachmann C-19.
