For every step Model Power takes forward, (small steam in N scale) they collapse backward with crap like that.
What a bunch of maroons.

Lee, that's not a "step", they've been making those for years. There are lots of fun foobies in there.

I particularly enjoy the cars with gold stickers (from the factory) that say "Collectors Car".

A beginning to a fantasy road . Chances are that N&W decals are around . One must have a blind eye to the duplication of reporting marks and fonts . Could be a pacific northwest road .

Actually, Model Power cars do serve a purpose...  I used the floor and ends of one for the boxcars to build this...


I also have a couple of their single dome tank cars in regular service.


They look pretty clunky up close, but they're okay for cereal filler until I get a chance to pick up a few more Atlas cars.

Bob:  If you look at the Cabooses on the right, the car in the back is the one Lee built.

Just a guess, but to me, it looks like a car you'd stick in front of autoracks or other high clearance cars in wintertime to knock  low hanging icicles out of tunnels.

No. 1968 tooling and the fonts are all wrong anyway.

I posted it cuz it made me laugh. ;D

  I have one of their 4050 50 fT. flat cars "Maine Casket Co." This is a nice red flat car with white Maine Casket Company lettering (an actual company I researched this) with two dark blue containers with red & white Maine Casket Company logos and markings. I picked this car up at a WGH "Worlds Greatest Hobby" show MP also makes this car in HO and no the real Casket Company did not own rail cars. Car would have been more interesting with two coffin shaped containes in a brown wood grain.                    Nate Goodman (Nato).

Here's another one which is kind of dumb.  It you look closely at this car you'll see a Blt and New date of 10-60. This is an old Atlas car.
