The CN opera window bulkhead flat looks nice but not my era.
Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

The MoPac caboose looks interesting - one of those undec might be the right size to bash a KCS Porthole  style caboose

That NYC box would be useful as a predecessor road car for my Conrail fleet.  I was just thinking last month about how I had a disproportionate amount of PRR for my 1980 versus other pre-merger roads.

Neat! A Southern 40' box car.


Hmm... when is Micro-
Trains coming out with
their ancient Greek poets
series...?


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.

Kiz, when did the Southern Green Light for Innovation scheme appear?

There may be some issues with licensing and choosing the correct body style for their Sokramiketes car.  :D

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

I know it was around in 1971, the year I'm modeling. I think it might have first appeared in 1969, but I have a terrible memory, so don't quote me on that.


Hmm... quote ancient Greek
poets instead...

Another purdy reefer for me this month, and yet I still have to buy the past two month's reefers.

I agree, and I like that MTL always has something to offer those of us who model north of the border.

That said, the rivet counter on my shoulder tells me the prototype for those centrebeams are 73' long not 61'8" (which may explain why I recall Red Caboose releasing this same scheme a few years back)

I'm not Kiz, 1969 (according to HOSAM).

Woo hoo. I was right!


Hmm... and Kiz said it
on April fools day too...
