No doubt these will go quick.

Nice looking product Brian! Way to go!

N-Joy!

Already ordered the CR paint out. It'll likely be the only one of these in my fleet, so will be unique amongst the horde. It'll find itself on CPBU/BUCP often... along with my nice ESM 65' CR gon.
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.

Hmmm ... that thought may be premature prior to you seeing what will be included in releases 3 through 6.  8)

The cars look fantastic - especially that CR paintout!

One question - regarding the BLW write-up - it seems as if NH would have saved money having them just done in boxcar red. Is that the correct story - I always wondered why NH cars were done in this scheme....

LOL
Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

Actually NH piggy-backed their order on top of BAR's 1953 order, and PC&F would have charged NH more if they went with the standard  (at the time) script herald on freight car red paint scheme.  So they took the frugal route and simply went with NH markings on the SoM scheme.  Of course, when the cars needed repainting in the 1960s, the railroad then went to the freight car red scheme.

I would qualify these as a very close C#*+!!?**# foobie; one which I will happily support with my wallet as there is nothing else available or on the horizon ....

Bryan,
  I've got my order in for a couple of the Penn Central cars but I will sure be looking forward to that Release 3 CPR car and who knows maybe in script at some point.  Thanks for the great car. --Brian

They're in the country.  They're scheduled to reach the distribution warehouse on Thursday, so figure they'll start shipping to distributors and dealers sometime mid-week next week and be in the stores the week of August 30.
