That CP runner pack should give Puddy a few things to be challenged by. And I can see the Milw box car making a few Green Bay related appearances.

Uh oh! Another "meat packers" series car. I wonder if this one will cause a commotion like the Rath car did.


Hmm... I'm not hanging
around to find out...


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

Saved by the bell. Wrong type Pennsy Stock Cars. Nothing much else will have to wait a little longer for the Diner.

I have a feeling that this Meat Packers reefer will be decorated using the same method I grossed about in https://www.therailwire.net/forum/index.php?topic=28938.0

That MILW car is  :drool: , but at that price, I'll probably pass, unless MBK puts it on sale at the right time

I have a couple of the Atheran Seico MR cars that are too new for me. Send me a PM if you are interested in them.

Best wishes, Dave
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

CP cars were built mid-90's, IIRC... too new for the Pudman. Too new for me as well, which hurts because those were a staple on the Havelock Sub up until a a year or two ago. Run wallet, run! Must fight dark powers of temptation...

But I tip my brim to MTL for eight numbers... nice.
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.

That was December 28, 2006.  I've been waiting 6 years to see the scanned photo of a car without "EXPRESS" lettering. 

Releasing another screwed up RI Express Box when the same scheme actually was used on real PS-1's is a slap in the face to anyone that tries to help out MTL with prototype information. 


It's similar situation with the Aluminum car they did.

The reality is that unless you're modeling the RI, you really don't have a use for any of these cars.  They aren't even in the '68 ORER.  They may have gone into freight service after '68, but it also could have just been company service.

edit - Out of the 65 cars put into Express service, 15 were put back into (some sort of) freight service by 1969.  None of the road numbers match the three cars MTL has done.  Of course more could have been included later.

Here one of our references.  Also, I'm really distressed that Mike posted a PM to make his point.  Just a reminder, PM stands for Personal Message.
