Ice-cooled A/C.  Excellent.  Now I can stop RP'ing mine and buy diner underbodies. :)

Sorry to ask, but how (or where) can you see that?

And, can you please explain the changes made to the 10-1-2 sleeper? I see working diaphragms, some kind of black bar between the coupler and the truck to make it less see-through, Z-scale brown couplers(?). Have you changed the underbody?

BTW,  I already ordered my diner through my local dealer. Kudos to Micro-Trains for making this model.

What's going on with the lower panels?  That's very distracting. Is it the lighting?  That doesn't seem to show like that in the media pack photo(shop).

Ice bunkers are present in the photos.

The underbody appliances are correct as-is for Lake Maitland, as well as the other two cars in the Pennsy 10-1-2 runner pack.  You can click these links to see a report on the modifications I made.

Thomasjmdavis,

Wabash Yellow (Union Pacific style letter) passenger decals do exist.  They are exceptionally hard to find.  Your best bet is to ask on the Wabash Yahoo discussion group.  I'm also kind of concerned by what I see in one diner picture.  The panels directly below the windows look a little funky to me.  Hopefully its just the lighting.  I look forward to seeing more pictures as I definitely want one.  Undecorated or Wabash would be great.

Bob,

I was not the one looking for the decals (that was Gerry)- I bought several sets some years ago, and still have enough for my Blue Bird kitbash and plenty left over for the cafe-lounge.  I bought my decals from Gary Roe, who had them done by Rail Graphics, who made the ones that Mark Vaughn sells in HO.

Great value, actually, as each sheet has enough decals for 6 or 8 cars (if you are careful cutting) and virtually every car name owned by Wabash.  Yellow, in the UP style font that started being applied in 1954.  No idea if he still has them available, but I would think if there were enough interest, someone might do another run.

Question on the trucks- did MT use the same trucks as on previous heavyweight cars or are these 3D7P2 or another PRR specific design?  In the photos I have seen to date, the trucks are too dark to show much detail (at least on my monitor).
