I won't take a hit on this but if and when they do the PRR cars I'm in trouble.  Nice to see them doing something new!

Has it been that long.  Hopefully the P70fbR's are their next project.

Look out
Mr. Wallet, this is as close as you may ever get to SUBS.  Anybody want to trade an ADL for a coach?  The ADLs would never exit the box with me...

These look exceptionally cool, if a bit pricey - I would have though there would be a high demand for these thus keeping the unit cost down, but whatever.

If the Aussie dollar stays at 83c US then the wallet can just about take the hit.

     Well Mr. Bank Account is now alittle over six hundred bucks lighter as I reserved, UP & SP 4 car and 2 car ad on sets,and a gotta have T&NO 4 car set. Only complaint is payment is Pay Pal which I don't dislike, but card gets charged now not at time of release, there is no such thing anymore of putting some money down to reserve and paying the rest later. if cars are as good as their Double Deck Gallery cars, and earlier Harriman RPO kits should be veddy nice.                                                                         Nate Goodman (Nato).

Here's what they look like.



Wouldn't the IC version make a nice train behind the new Bachmann IC heavy 4-8-2??  8)

They used to have some baggage cars with kitbash possibilities - I wonder if they'll ever re-do them ...

I'm liking the looks of these very much. But they aren't being offered in any classic northeastern schemes. Were they used by anyone in the northeast?

No, they are a classic Harriman design, used by the roads controlled by E. H. Harriman, which were UP, SP, IC, and Chicago & Alton.
