Micro Trains should have done this months ago

   I see that MicroTrains finally got smart and decided to offer their Heavyweight RPO car in Undec Pullman (dark) Green with a black roof. Of course try and find one, they are all sold out at  most dealers which goes to show you they should have offered one along with their first releases of this car. I realize the window arrangement on the car is really correct for only a handful of roads, but still it would be close enough for others. Nate Goodman (Nato). Salt Lake,Utah.

Nate,
 They haven't shipped yet that I know of. They were supposed to ship with this months orders early in the month and didn't make it, at least for our shop. Walthers just listed them as arriving Monday so maybe MT is in the process of shipping them out now.

   Thanks ,thats good to know. Many on line shops are however listing the reservations as closed, or already sold out. Nate Goodman (Nato).

Thanks for this thread..........it "joggled" my old mind that I wanted one of these too.

Just got off the phone with Chuck, and I have one on the way. He's got a few more too ;D

So do I buy 2 now and try to make this out of them:



Or do I cross my fingers and hope MT does a car closer to mine?

Hmmmmm  :-\  Wish MT would announce ALL the heavyweights they are doing.

Chris, is this a bad starting point?

M. B. Kleins (www.modeltrainstuff.com) does not take reservations, so keep watching their web site under New Arrivals-N-
Scale and order from them when they show up as in.

Bob,

That's not mine - it's a Hellgate sample that I assume was put together by Claus. I'm going to guess that those are detailed MT trucks (the old ones).

I will be ordering one but I believe it comes without trucks.

Mark, I have 2 of those still in their plastic.  I also finished a 3rd but I can't get the MT trucks to ride properly for some reason.

I'd wait, that's a Pullman car, not an ACF.  Different construction, especially the belt rail.  Maybe wait and see what prototype they choose for the full baggage.

Ask Claus, I'm interested!  ;D

The reason I'm interested:
