AZL to Release Special GP38-2s
- It is with great pride that AZL is bringing back the Rogue Locomotive Works
(RLW) GP38-2. AZL kept the original body and mated the locomotive with

now offers window glass, AZL Auto- Latch couplers, standard fuel tank and
accurate air horns. The handrails are improved and the locomotive now has a
As many of you know, Don Bouchard was the general manager and tool maker at
RLW back in the late 1990s and was able to create the VERY first Z scale
hood unit. Don sadly died in an accident in 2010. AZL will honor Don with a
special SP and BN edition of the GP38-2. AZL and Ztrack Magazine will donate
the net income from this special run to Don's family in Oregon.
Tonight, we have uploaded an online order page for the Bouchard
locomotives. We have listed both the BN and SP version. For those of you attending the
Z Scale National Convention, you can prepay for your locomotives and pick
them up at the show. The cost for prepay with pickup at the Convention is
$112.00 per locomotive.
You can also pay for your locomotives at the show. Please note, we will be
charging 8% Colorado sales tax for all sales made during the convention.
If you are not attending the convention, but would like to order the
locomotives, the cost is $118.00 which includes domestic shipping. These
locomotives will be shipped as soon as they are in stock.

supporting Don Bouchard's family.
