Can't wait to see the trucks, too! How will we be able to get a hold of those separately?

What trucks?  These will be gliding on rubber bladders (like a hovercraft).  That is one of the things MT messed up on this model. Well the thickens of the walls is also way out of scale.  :D :trollface:

Will it come in FEMA death camp gray?

Lol, nah, those cars are all false flagged to fake railroads controlled by the lizard people.

All kidding aside, looks like another stellar passenger car. Just keep on target when it comes to car names and it'll be a real winner. Oh, and do one in MOW yellow or gray for me.

PRR 492197 would be a good number for one in yellow, though you probably won't see the number by the time MT adds it to their weathered line of cars.
PRR 493087 would be another one... B )

But., thankfully none in gray... that seems more like PC's direction.

PC MOW equipment was yellow. Or sometimes deepwater green...  Actually it was the Pennsy that used gray before yellow on most MOW equipment.

Conrail went to gray...

Yep, the PRR switched from grey to yellow for MOW equipment in 1953, not to say though that there were no straglers who got painted later.

Absolutely! I think this is the attraction in MOW equipment modeling!

I'd rather just have an undecorated version for MOW conversions. Many of those MOW cars got their windows plated over. I'd rather plate them over, then paint and decal.
And as far as decals go, I think I have nagged John Frantz of MVS enough that he may release his MOW decals in N. You're welcome, internet.  :P

Again, not everyone wants to count rivets (even thought they are clearly visible), so I understand the appeal.
I do, after all, own both those N Scale Enthusiast PRR MOW cars.

Of all the color photos that I have seen on the internet only one of them showed a car in gray so I thought the yellow was more common.  :oops: :|  Such is unfortunately something a person can do much about when there isn't money for things like books...

Jerry - it's not surprising - probably a lot more photos were taken of mundane stuff as time wore on.

I was surprised when I learned PRR ever used gray - since all I had ever seen was yellow - which continued into PC days.

Here are some color photos of PRR MoW in grey (not my pictures):



This one (^) was taken in 2/1953. The PRR switched over to yellow in 7/1953



1952



7/1953. This may prove that some MoW were strglers after the official repaint, but for how long?
