Yup. I received shipping confirmation for mine about 2 hours ago. Still impatiently awaiting the BLMA F89-J's in brown, tho'.

I got a pair of UP's, for no particular reason, to join my sextet of TT cars. Since I just put the TT's in a box for storage, I never gave myself a chance to play around with them, however with the UP's I did and I must say that being able to configure them for COFC service is a big win. I love these cars! Maybe not too common up here in the Great White North, but it's likely and with CP's penchant for container operations, and their even greater penchant for using old equipment in my era, that these ran into Toronto in COFC service on the Railrunners. Hope they do another run of the 1970/80's TT yellow cars soon.

Big thumbs up for Pat at Trainworx, hit this one out of the park!

Did these end up in MOW service on UP at some point?

Looks like the rest of the announced flats have also shipped.  WP, ATSF, Rio Grande, and Rock Island.    I think I will have more than I need now. :facepalm:

So my shipment of these cars just came in today and they look awesome as the rest of the series has been. However, has anyone else had problems with the flanges grinding on the bottom of some of the cars?  :?

I don't have any of the Trainworx flats, but I can confirm that I discovered this same problem on my new Atlas 89' flatcars, which, interestingly, come with what I believe are Fox Valley metal wheelsets.

Its not all of the wheels, but it seems like theres a few of the wide flange FVM wheels that have slightly bigger flanges, enough so that the car doesn't roll smoothly.  :|
