Looks like "hot"* stuff.  Bob, will they be kits?  What are we looking at price wise?

You have gotten my attention!  I would definitely be interested in a couple of the cars on the left.

Hey Tom,
These will be out later around mid summer. The productions units will be weighted resin, pewter and etched brass. Shooting for $20 or less, but it is too early to tell. I am using a new method of Rapid Prototyping to make the casting masters from CAD files. I don't even have these up on the site yet. Going to concentrate first on the Pennsy G39 Ore Jenneys and the G22's Gondolas. Brad, my partner, is harassing me to a PRR H30 Hopper and a TM8 or TM10 Tankcar before I do the bottle car. But I will win that battle.

Regards
Bob Knight

I could go for H30's so don't rule them out.

PRR H30 hoppers would be killers!!!!  :D

There are no accurate PRR covered hoppers available to date.

Tom,

You didn't see those at the last Timonium show?
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

Bob, does Brad realize those tank cars weren't in revenue service?

I'm not dissing them, but there were very few rostered and they weren't in revenue service. That adds up to a negligible market.

Not to mention that MicroTrains already painted a tank car as a PRR TM8. Okay, not perfect, but acceptable.

There were thousands of G22's and H30's in revenue service. Some individuals will purchase a dozen or more of each.  ;)
