Joe,

I think you guys need to hire a proof reader:

CP Rail
Road Number CPAA 211077
with Vent Cover Panels (Assembly Required)

This 40’ rib side box car with single door


It's at least a 50 footer! ;D

They definitely need a proof-reader or to provide the proof reader they have with the photos they're using so they can see the gaffs. The Pullman car description reads "Owned by Santa Fe, it displays the ‘Pullman’ name across the top and road number across the bottom, also in metallic gold." The picture clearly shows no "Pullman" name across the top, but "Santa Fe" instead. Well, at least the road number's in the right place, but is it from the right number series?
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.

I would have not called the BNSF car a Centerflow® at all... the proto is a Gunderson.

Also... the N&W Pevler blue is nice on the Z GP9 (lettering is kinda off though)... but it's the passenger scheme on a freight engine.

Far be it for me to question you Robbman, but I thought the prototypes were Trinity 5161's; the model that IM and ExactRail already produce in this scheme.  (The IM model is one of my favorites.)

Good call... indeed they are!  For some reason I thought they were the Gundersons BNSF got a few years ago

And 500-505 were Phase 2, while 506-521 were phase 3 GP9s (nevermind the other issues).

Joe, why didn't you just give it a 4650 number instead of a 5161 number?
