Right-of-Way Industries 0 Gauge

(Akron, Ohio, USA)

Bill Benson's Right-of-Way Industries was a state of the art company at the time. Brass models made at the same place as Overland made their equipment (Ajin Precision of Korea). RoW used Pittman motors (7 pole, skew wound, ball bearing end bells, and rare earth magnets), not the usual Mabuchi motors. They had constant lighting and the first ever digital on board sound system (not so hot by today's standards, but it did have the first neutral sounds). The articulateds had two vertical motors and both drive trains pivoted allowing 042 curves for even 2-8-8-0s. Their transformer was the first to achieve 400 watts. RoW also had the first three color signals for tinplate/hi-rail trains that were electrically compatible with ac operation.
