Too new for my era but friggin' sweet.  I hope these Tropicana cars are really successful for BLMA.  The Juice Train is my favorite unit train.

Ya'll can thank me later...  ;)

I just finished this car about three weeks ago...before I realized the TPIX cars only have four digit reporting marks...really need to do better research next time... :facepalm: 

Since they are all foobs anyway, it's all good...  :trollface:

Thanks for the support guys!  This is a fun project, and I'm excited about seeing long strings of these cars rolling around layouts and clubs.
