Looks like the august releases are out. Guess I gotta buy the auto rack for my circus train. Also the 28-1 just look spectacular. Joe really has out done himself on these heavy weights.

But look at this.. might be interesting. Yes I know its a collectors item. Yes, I really am pleased, and i think it would be great during the shows during christmas.

Though I can do with out the 4-4-0. Just use the challenger or something old.

The heavyweights are really nice...  Does the roof remove in a way that a roof modernization kit could be made, ie to make some stand-in  business cars?

Unlike the RPO, the roof is a separate component from the glass panels and snaps into indentations at the top of the inside face of the sides.

Interesting....

Remember there used to be a resin cast product line of roof pieces that fit into Atlas and Lima cars?

I remember someone making those roofs.  Never was able to bet any.  They were as scarce as hens teeth.

They won't fit in the MTL cars as the Atlas/RR cars are shorter being an earlier prototype.

NHD made them.  Sold exclusively through BLW.  But that was at the latest in the 1990s, if not before then.

Maybe it's one of those funky Chessie System open hopper covers the kitty had? (Yes, I know it's not, just funnin' with ya', but surprised no one's modeled that oddity yet.)
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

Those were called "hopper toppers" on CR.

I can't understand why they would do the RBBB circus auto rack AGAIN. They had it there set. The Red Train only runs one in the train so two would bot be correct?.. OH, why, why, why, what else can you say.
