This is odd!  ;) These June releases are not even on the MTL site as of 20 seconds ago.

Somebody tell me about the Milw. RPO.  I believe they had similar cars early (like 1910-20) but how accurate is this car in this paint scheme?  Thanks!

The PRR Poster series is interesting if the art work is accurate (i.e. no roof walks)..

~Ian

It's going to be hard to strip those posters off though!  :D

It's like their 100T hopper - they could easily sell 12 car sets in NS, Conrail or NW - but they don't even bother.

The collectors are their primary customer base, hence the PRR poster Greenville cars before the prototypical version.  I would wait and not purchase these foobs, as the prototypical version will be coming eventually.

And more power to them for the strong collectors market!

I don't want to sound like a broken record, but there are some cars they make that they could sell oodles of,
like some of the hoppers.  Clearly even Kato understands this with the 8 car coal porter sets...

Zzzzzzzz.

No D78 = vaporware. Is anybody buying these cars? Seriously, just wondering. How about a proper rtr X23 runners pack. Then watch the Pennsy guys feed.
Never argue with idiots; they'll drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

Andy,

Paint job is pretty close except it should have brown trucks since it has a brown roof.  Not sure if the number they put on it goes with this paint job, however (can't tell the number from the photo - sorry).

I still have hope the D78 will be announced at the national convention.

How about that Cotton Belt GP-7 riding on six-axle trucks?

Is it possible to turn an MTL RPO into something resembling a New Haven one? Like cut another door in the side and patch some windows? Does anybody have a decent side picture of a NH RPO?

The announcement says it's coming in July, 2012.


Hmm... this doesn't have
anything to do with Star
Trek and time warps, huh...?


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.
"It works! It works!"

The MTL model is fairly accurate for the New Haven prototype, but only for roughly the first 10-15 years or so of its existence and well before 1930.  See my entry in this week's Weekend Update.  To have a model that represented the prototype during its final 40+ years, you would have to change the window configuration from 3-3/4-2 to 0-4/4-0.  The roof could use some minor mods as well.
