That is pretty cool, but ouch, 30 bones for a car.

What's awesome though, is that right below it, you can get 4 CNR boxes for $45. That's a deal.

Sure are some neat C&O cars.
I think that this is a good type of series for M-T to do. Runners get some different cars that are prototype and collectors get, well soime different cars (that are prototype) !

Another bogus PS box car with a Evans box car paint scheme on it. They'll never learn will they?

That Diamond tank looks cool though, might pick that one up...

That tank is cool -- and it fits my are!  But you touched on one of my peeves wiith MT -- they have several accurate body styles that they almost never paint with proto schmes!

Two interest me this month, but both are reprints that I did not buy the first time around, the Diamond Alkali tank car and the C&S reefer. The Diamond tank may be too late in era for me, though. The logo looks sixtyish or later.

I just noticed the Tankcar description says it was built one town over from where I grew up at the GATX plant.

I may just have to get one  ;)

Shite! They listened! N&W hopper runner pack.  :o

Now I have to figure out if they listened on the class suggestions I made, and if they did the post 1951 scheme (24" N&W).

neat c&o cars.

I'm a C&O fan, I need all six. Let's see 6 X 30 = ...

Oh wait, I like C&O a bunch but I think I just dodged a bullet ... ;D

Might have to break down and get the tank car.  Sure wish someone would make a WWII era tank car - the kind that carried crude north by the trainload.

They ignored my emails in the past and repeated the same errors ... :-X

They are lettering these as class HL, which is the fishbelly 55 ton (Atlas makes them). The non-fishbelly class H7 or class H9 would be a much better match for the M-T peaked twin.  ::)

I ordered a set anyway ...
