N Scale Enthusiast LIRR cars?

Not sure if these are correct for LIRR, as I have no time to hit the books right now.

 Are these old Model Power cars, Rivarossi or? Though Micro-Trains logo appears, but for trucks/couplers only, or their cars?
 $90 is a bit steep too :(

They appear to be freshly issued genuine MT cars with MT decoration.  Neither Model Power or Rivarossi are producing models so I doubt that NSE would be using any of them for new paint schemes.

Got my set a few days ago , Grey appears dark but these may be correct . I like them and want as many proto towns as MTL can spell .

While I am sure that the paint scheme is accurate I can't find a good shot of them that shows that the name and number are correct.  The Long Island was the ward of the Pennsylvania and they received a large group of Plan 3416 parlor cars from the PRR (and one Lackawanna parlor). Jack Deasy has a great page about these parlor cars, with quite a few photographs of various cars...

http://www.dominionrailvoyages.com/jhd/lirr/page3.html

Additional shots can be found at the Passenger Car Photo Index, series numbers 2011 to 2032...

http://passcarphotos.info/Indices/LIRR1.htm

While not a part of the offering the Long Island also had a number of former Pullman sleepers that were also acquired and used as parlors as well... shots of some of these cars can be seen on the Long Island page as well.  The MT Plan 3410 12 Section - 1 Drawing Room sleepers could also be offered (wonder if they will) since there were a few passed on to the Long Island.

Its worth noting, given that Atlas has offered their ALCO C420s in the gray and orange scheme that these cars are all appropriate for cars that were pulled by these units.

I have the LIRR Vol 4 Color Guide (Morning Sun) at the office so I will look in the morning. Good chance we will bring out Osgood Bradley's in LIRR in a second N scale release; they were really popular in HO in both the blue and grey and the orange "Dashing Dan".......
Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

Slight delay is the latest on the Bradley cars.  First quarter 2015 is the current projection if I remember correctly, which is only one quarter longer than originally planned.

Reason for no train $ right now is moving to GF's ap't., as she's been staying with me since the beginning of year. Her 27 y/o daughter finally got her own place. So Diana and I are doing painting, some landscaping, etc. BUT, I get the the other bedroom for myself:) You know what that means fella's. ;)

I was thinking more like expansion of layout. Maybe in Sep't. I can order a set of these cars. If it's LIRR, and correct, I want it.
