MICRO-TRAINS Grape to Glass Series CLUB

If you would like to receive all Grape to Glass Series Cars you can sign up today.

We have three options to sign up to receive all of the cars in this series:

1) Receive each car shipped each month as they are released.

2) Receive one shipment after TWO cars have been released. A new shipment will be sent after every SECOND car is released.

3) Receive one shipment after THREE cars have been released. A new shipment will be sent after every THIRD car is releases.

- We must have a credit card on file. We cannot do this with payment by check or paypal.

- You will be charged in advance for each series shipment. For example if you sign up option #3 then when the first car is received by N Scale Supply you will be charged for 3 cars plus 1 shipping charge. When the third car arrives then a shipment will be dispatched to you. The next month with car #4 the process will repeat.

NOTE: Micro-Trains intends to release these cars each month, but as we have seen in the past they may occasional skip a month.

Please email sales@nscalesupply.com if you have any questions. To join the club please place an order using the part numbers listed below.
