New color schemes and more roads, like Rock Island and Western Pacific.

Those wanting SP commuter cars, notice that "Commute" is by the doors on this one!

I would be interested in the RI cars but I cannot find a single photo of them in service.

That's a great pic.  I assume that's from IRM.  I don't know if the WOT cars are supposed to represent the car in that picture or not.  Obviously the windows are way off, but it also looks to about 10' shorter that the pic you posted.  I'm still looking through my books to see if there is any reference to the WOT type cars.

  If not, I have a decision to make.  I'm been waiting for cars for this to pull:





And the WOT cars would look really good behind it.

But I might wait for some of these (as soon as I build them :P):

It looks like that is the car series WOT is using. The IRM pic is 2555.

WOT is doing Car Numbers: 2550, 2558, 2570, 2589

Unfortunately the Morning Sun Book doesn't have that number series.  It says the 2500-2549 and 2600-2614 are the same (like the IRM cars).  I'm not even sure at this point if the RI had cars numbered 2550-2599 but I'll give WOT benefit of the doubt until I know otherwise. 


The third car back here has some promise, despite the roof vents.

Thanks Mark, that saves me a bunch of time.  I'll have to decide how close is 'close enough'.  The windows I could probably get past for the overall effect, but the length might be the killer.

Yeah, unfortunantly the RI cars were full length cars.
