More XIH love for modelers of Canadian roads

The next and final (for now) release of the XIH boxcar is being announced on Friday.  But here's a head's-up to the modelers of Canadian roads.  "Eastern Seaboard" refers to that of North America and not just the States.   There will be some concentration on the southeast U.S. coast toward the end of the year, but Canada always will be in the mix.

Here are pics of the three Canadian themed cars included in the upcoming release:







These are pilot models rushed east from the Orient in time for display at the Springfield show.  The CP Rail paint is too bright and is being corrected for the production run.

The ten-car XIH release is scheduled for April.

Keep this up Bryan and we'll make you an honourary hoser.... you'll find yourself craving back bacon, maple syrup and Molson's... wondering of the Leafs can make the playoff's and supporting universal healthcare....LOL

Though you can be sure I'll be getting all three, I get the feeling a few multiples of the sans roofwalk car will be in order to get renumbered. They look great, Bryan!
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.

Timmys is all over Ohio now..and Columbus has an NHL team. (sort of)  the gap is narrowing.. ;)

After putting my sun glasses on, I liked the yellow CP cars. 8)
