SP LogoRiver Raisin Models has assembled an array of Southern Pacific steam locomotives that will serve as a basis for your SP steam roster. Our builder is Boo Rim Precision.  The project included all nine different versions with many different appliances and tenders to choose from. This is the most diverse project we have embarked on yet. River Raisin imported these models for delivery in 2008. These models include the features and qualities that you have grown to expect from River Raisin Models. We are working with our builder to include a 9 pin DCC wiring harnes already installed.
