Wow if true. New staffing must've changed their stance on N not selling.

What did they post Lou?  I don't see anything in your initial post.

There was a fairly buried post on FB several months ago that said they just got three new n-scale tooling projects approved.  So yeah should be interesting in the next year or two.

GP40-2L, GP40-2W, GP38-2W... lol.

I'd be pretty pleased if they did another run of the TOFC flats (for CP).
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.

I am curious, as well.

I would hope for N scale version of their USRA light locomotives, now that MP is out of business and no one is sure what MRC will keep or trash.

I would also hope for additions to the nineteenth century old MDC line.  An eight wheeler, a ten wheeler and some non box type freight cars.

I see that someone mentioned some modern stuff, but no link to anything, so I can not be sure if it is only modern stuff.

That was it...  I had posted "thanks!"  on the FB announcement of the LPG cars and out of the blue
they responded back several days later....
