Don't know if it's the right car or if all the road numbers are right, but the I know the GN one is real.

Yep, they're out there. I believe we talked about this awhile back.
No farms, no food.

Some are correct, some aren't. The IM model is a Trinity 5161cuft, and while some of the Heritage Cars are the Trinity 5161, some are 'similar' looking cars built by Greenbriar and Gunderson.

This is a Trinity 5161, so it's the right car.

Close enough for some, not so much for others... personal preference really.
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.
