Since I can still do this here, the IM website is updated and has a new body style, an ATSF stock car.

Too bad
the Atlas crowd will miss this fine model.  This would be a Mr. Wallet emergency if I needed these...

Yeah, they'll be long sold out before a post would be allowed. ;)

Maybe I could justify these, somehow. As interchange traffic. Or repaint them to MoP.

Yes, a quality stock car is nice but I'd really like to see the 60' flat car myself.

How could the flatcar be so difficult?  Athearn seems to have gotten it right with the
GSC car - low and heavy. Is the problem that IMRC is married to the stupid MTL
trucks?

I bet that's it.  The MT coupler box would be higher than the deck.

I'm wondering how long it will take till someone opens a thread with the title:

I need crap from your area.

those cars need to smell, right ? they were used to move cows from the big fields to the big cities, right ? very nice looking cars but way to old for me...

Bandini Mountain
get a piece, just for the realisim.  Hopefully someone will be making a sound decoder for these soon.  The decoder and speaker had better be bovine shaped, since the car is as see-through as auto racks.  Better be accurate sounds for longhorn and shorthorns available to satisfy the 'horn-measurers' around here...
