Mustangs Mangle Models

With this season’s first NMRA event right around the corner, the fastest Mustangs in the country are preparing to crush the competition.  To the annoyance of model railroad fans, confused racers are showing up at the other NMRA’s events, that is, the National Model Railroad Association.

Rubbing salt in that wound is the fact that these 10-second and faster Stangs are beating the pants off the underpowered model rail cars owners.  Billy Spoorweg showed up in his heavily modified 1989 Mustang notchback and smoked all other participants, despite the fact they were all trains. 

Even the monster 1:12 “Large Scale” rail cars couldn’t keep up with his beast, which consistently runs low 10-seconds in the quarter-mile. reached out to me and asked to clear up this confusion.  All Mustang enthusiasts, please go to to check out the National Mustang Racers Association events and information.  All railroad enthusiasts please visit for the National Model Railroad Association.
