I got mine, too... It's gorgeous! It's really too bad the X48 was such a small class (20 cars) compared to the overall PRR freight car fleet, or I'd have done the 3-pack.
If only we could get accurate X29 rebuilds in N scale...!
I couldn't help myself, I got all three! I'm lucky George didn't do a six pack!
I did a little research on these as the PRR usually didn't do things by halves!
Didn't make much sense that they only had 20 PS1s...
Pullman built 100 cars with a cushioned underframe and split them up amongst 8 roads.
They must have practically given them away as the roads either were already big customers or had not purchased any previously.
The feedback must not have been good, as Pullman didn't built any more PS1 with cushioned underframes!
There was an interesting discussion on the PRR-Modelling group regarding the X48 being delivered with black painted ends. Didn't seem to have a definitive answer?
With the PRR X48 and the NYC scheme that Atlas just released, we have two examples from the same Pullman lot (8160).
