+1  Next year it's the Brit Milah tank car series.  I'm sure Bryan will take issue with the prototype of the car, but it's all we got :)

Nope, no issues taken.  Every company should be free to market and produce product however it feels best represents its interests.  If such actions cause a void, either the company will self-correct or other companies will step up to fill the void.

Hmm... I'm putting that
on my list of things we
won't see this century...


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!"

A runner pack of the Conrail ballast hoppers would be cool. Or Conrail 50' gondolas, Conrail guys can never have too many gondolas. Any of the autoparts cars would be good too.
Your layouts nice, but it needs more Conrail !

Yeah, Joe.

In fact, I didn't know why Bryan didn't add a wink, wink,   ;) ;) on the first post.

My personal choice would be some DRGW Cookie Box cars... but... these have been run quite a bit by both Micro-Trains and Intermountain so perhaps they are 'played out'.  Too many around so... maybe not unique enough to warrant a runner pack. 

The same holds true for PFE reefers... even though they seem to sell well despite being run by numerous makers... and there literally were HUNDREDS of them in various paint schemes. 

The best choice for Micro-trains would be a body style they run exclusively and would generate interest by a wide variety of modelers.  As stated before... something they have NOT run in a long time would also be an item of interest for some modelers too.

I like the idea of a tank car... and Micro-trains has some good ones.  The triple dome tank car in UTLX, SHPX, GATX... but... donning a well known product such as Pennzoil or Quaker State lubricants if such a car existed in enough quantity to make a 4 car set.
