This NASG program was started in 2020. The current plan is to offer a car each year by any manufacturer. The cars will be offered with either American Flyer-compatible couplers and wheels (a.k.a. "hi-rail"), or "scale" wheels and couplers. These cars can only be ordered by active NASG members.

The railroad lasted from 1918 until 1986 when it was merged and integrated into the SOO Line. The railroad's nickname was the "The Dan Patch Line", named after the founder's favorite horse, Dan Patch.
