Oh wow, so now actually building a unit grain train for the Port of Baltimore IS going to be possible.

So awesome.

Ohh, a direct shot to the wallet with at least three of those reefers. CGW, Meeters, and White Rock at the minimum.

When is Atlas going to make something to pull all those steam era freight cars??

But .. if we could convince Paul and Cory to releas a C40-8, it would shut up a lot more :)

Those hoppers are nice, but I wonder why they would be in the Trainman line?  Why would Atlas invest in new tooling and not want to charge a premium for it by adding whatever it takes to make it to their regular line?

Maybe 'cause they know Ed will by a whole bunch at a slightly lower price point?

It actually makes sense and works in the favor of the modeler that wants to do unit trains, without blowing the whole year's train budget.  They will be able to focus on quantity and operations, while giving up a bit of detail.  For those of us that would only buy one or two, I'd rather have the extra detail and pay a little more.  I can always add detail if I want.  There has to be a trade off somewhere.

If they had done those hoppers 8 years ago, I'd still be a Conrail modeler.  Although, they might be applicable to earlier unit trains...  Mmmmm.

I think those schemes (BN excluded) are a little too modern for the mid 80s, but I have no doubt in my mind that some period correct schemes will be coming down the road.

Agree with this.  I actually like MT's Evans hopper a lot because it looks great and is "robust".  Plus, it's at prototypical height right out of the box.
