Just saw the pictures on FB. Look nice. Southern had at least a few hundred of the 2750's, not sure about the smaller one. Those 2 roads will do pretty well down here in Georgia.

Those might be backwards.  Edit: Or I could be putting to much stake in the stirrups.

Isn't the 2750 the smaller one?

The show isn't over yet...that's all I can say.  And I hope no one says they can't understand why you are excited about some release in the future...Not every one is as dialed into the (bushism) Internets as we are, so this is new and exciting for them :D

Joe

Well, I wasn't excited because it is not another wooden reefer painted in some foobie scheme (using ink jet printing).  :trollface:  Seriously, I do collect MT billboard reefers.

But I also have to take exception to your statement.  I seem to recall seeing ads for the MT spine car in printed (not online) magazines and IIRC, I saw the physical (undecorated) model at Springfield in January.  I think that it was also shown (and photographed) at other shows, earlier this year.

As far as not everybody not being turned onto the Internets, that is true. But the person in question obviously is (since he is an active member of this and possibly other forums).  To put this to rest, I am happy that the spine car re-ignited the excitement yet again.  ;)

YEEUP! Sorry about that, too much airline hold music while I'm trying to type. Don't know if Southern had the bigger ones. They had some smaller than 2750's so don't know if they could wrap those into the 2750's too.

So the big one is 100 ton from 1964 - are they good for SOU/NS?

Can't find any in the ORER.

This should be the 2750:

No, the 'big' one is probably an 80 ton car.

Maybe this:

I am pretty sure I posted links correctly as labeled on the Facebook page. I have no knowledge of whether Atlas labeled them correctly, but that is what you guys are for!  :lol:

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

Just got a look at my Southern Color Guide. The Southern's are an earlier version with 11 panels. These and Jason's have 17 panels if I counted right.

I know you linked to what Atlas had, and it may be right.  It's just that the drawing I have of the 2750 has the left stirrup like the Atlas 2960 and not the one the Atlas 2750 has.  I may have jumped the gun as far as something you can identify a car by.  Or maybe Atlas messed them up.  :)

Just got a look at my Southern Color Guide. The Southern's are an earlier version with 11 panels. These and Jason's have 17 panels if I counted right.



Southern did have 2750s.  That's the car I linked to.  I assume they are Pullman, but don't know for sure.
