Freight car from Craig at BLMA?

Everyone seems to be talking about the Thrall 86 ft. boxcar announced by Trainworx, but I have seen no mention of the other bombshell in the latest NSR to the effect that in addition to bridges and details, Craig Martyn is "working on a completely new freight car."

Whatcha workin' on, Craig??  8)

Nope, it's been mentioned here, on the Atlas board and at Trainorders.com previously!

On Trainorders, Craig played some guessing games, and I think denied a few rumors including modern refrigerator cars.

I think he confirmed it is coming in HO and N.

I think Lee may be right. After all, it is a car not currently available in N scale. And one not likely to be made by the big boys.  ::)

Although
in Nscale it would be a suppository car...

Patience my friends!  We're working on a few different cars actually, so things will get interesting...   ;)

And yes, the cars will most likely come in HO & N Scale and will, of course, be 100% RTR.

how about you throw on some cab signal boxes and airhorns to that mold sprue?

As long as you pay the extra costs to do so...
