Wow, I hope that's a trend.  I would like to see some North Shore cars.

I read that Concor's next project is the Electroliner.

Yes, I read that too...5 years ago... ;D  Hopefully they are still going through with it.

Con-Cor at one time was taking reservations for the Electroliner in HO, but cancelled the project due to lack of sufficient reservations in HO. That Bachmann car looks very much like an Indianapolis Railways car, although similar cars were used by a few other cities. A double truck Birney or a Stone & Webster "turtleback" double ended car would have been a better choice, IMHO, as they were used in more cities (and rural areas) and do not require a turning loop.

Baltimore Transit would make a handsome model, even if they can't do the 5' gauge trucks...
