Benton, TN, a manufacturer of HO, N, and S Scale model trains, is proud to partner with CSX Transportation in supporting the Pride in Service program.

Announced in 2019, Pride in Service is one way that CSX recognizes the service of its employees who are United States military veterans and active-duty first responders in their local communities. To kick off the program, CSX dedicated three ES44 locomotives in special paint schemes to honor the Spirit of Law Enforcement, First Responders, and the United States Armed Forces. worked closely with CSX to offer highly detailed HO Scale models of each Pride in Service ES44 locomotive. To ensure that their officially licensed models were true to the real-world prototypes, CSX graphic designer Tyler Hardin and the CSX Huntington Locomotive Shop provided with the original paint and lettering diagrams for the all three locomotives.

One of’s core values is giving back. Like CSX, the model train maker believes it’s important to honor those who sacrifice for our country and our local communities on a daily basis. That’s why they are donating a total of $30,000* of the proceeds from the sale of these unique locomotives to the following CSX Pride in Service partner organizations:

  • Blue Star Families
  • First Responders Children’s Foundation
  • Operation Homefront
  • Operation Gratitude

*$6,000 for each charity
