Don't think we're allowed to direct link to it.   I'll let someone else host it if they want to.

Looks 60ft to me, maybe even a little longer.   I hope it's a tank car.

It'd be awesome if it were the thrall pellet car.

Hopefully there will be new runs of the cars he already has.  :|

It's riding too high, and the trucks are wrong.  The couplers are too big.  The color is off.  It's also obviously a foobie!  "Freight Car" never had a #330 on their roster.

In all seriousness, I hope it's not a "too modern" car (and it will be), but always looking forward to a new BLMA product!

The photo seems odd.   I'm not sure if there is the actual car behind the gray box, or if has otherwise been photoshopped, but from the angle it doesn't seem like there is any type of end framework (like from a covered hopper) or solid end (like from a boxcar, et al)....otherwise I think we would see the far left corner in the photo, no?

So if the photo is simply a pic of the car with a gray box over it and no other trickery, I personally think boxcars and covered hoppers (and maybe even flats?) are out.    But I *would* love to be proven wrong....I would buy many thrall pellet cars.

Hmm... I'm betting it will
be an aquarium car....


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!"

PD hopper? Trinity plastics hopper? A new auto parts box.
You've crossed the walls, excelled
Further along through their hell
All for my heart, I watch you kill
You always have, you always will
Now spread your wings and sail out to me

Can you give us build dates for the car, so us non-modern guys can breathe easier? C'mon just the dates, just the dates.... Or better yet the era.... That's not giving away the car type. C'mon.

:D

Nope!  I'd like to hold on to my special privileges, and insure future ESM projects stay secret as well.  :D

Tank car.  I just hope whatever it is it resist foobie status when run on a layout set in the late 60s.
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

I'm just glad to see the pipe loads are being run again.  Although I'd like to see the large size run in green....

Counting ties and presuming Atlas C55 has prototypical spacing, my guess is the car is 62 feet long or more.  I like modern!
