The real deal (X-LVIII)

The first models from the production run of X58 boxcars arrived today for final approval.  Here is a quick photo tease of the second Pennsy car, an X58C with Keystone cushioned underframe.  Click the photos for bigger pics.





I believe people will be pleased in particular with the fineness of the etchings and roofwalk end supports, along with the innovative thin-profile draft gear - all of which push the N scale envelope farther along.  The model remains on schedule to hit the water the second week of January for a February launch date.  Reservations will commence the first week of January.

For the first time, ESM will have a table at the Springfield show - Mallary Complex, table 157-G.  Production run samples of the X58 will be on display all weekend, along with samples of some upcoming Sovereign Modeler items if they are ready on time.

Holly detail, excellent job from the sample!

They look so nice I might just have to get one patch it and drag it behind some Dash 9's  :D

A masterpiece, pure and simple.  I can't wait until they're rolling on Juniata Division rails!

I'll be on the prowl for a few of these to add to the interchange fleet.  Great work, Bryan.  You haven't missed a thing (that I can see!)

Needs more Conrail  :D

Looking forward to meeting you at Springfield.

Not looking forward to seeing my bank account after a few runs of Conrail.
You've crossed the walls, excelled
Further along through their hell
All for my heart, I watch you kill
You always have, you always will
Now spread your wings and sail out to me
