Newbraugh Brothers Toys 1983 - 2008

Some of the rolling stock pictured below were derived from Frank's Roundhouse production. They were commissioned by Newbraugh Brothers Toys (NBT) of Berkeley Springs, West Virginia and, where noted below, decorated by Darley Design, Dulaney Enterprises or Pleasant Valley Process (PVP) Company. NBT cars were initially sold at the Train Collectors Association York, Pennsylvania train meets. Eventually, NBT's custom-decorated cars were sold nationally to civic groups, train clubs and private businesses through the distribution efforts of Dulaney Enterprises in the 1980's, and Mountaineer Hobbies in the 1990's. Some cars were commissioned for Penn State. For cars made before 1983, see Newbraugh Brothers Toys 1974 - 1982.

Special thanks to David B. Hollingsworth of St. Albans, West Virginia, who provided many of the NBT historical details.
