Holy crap, Mass Central Gps??? Never in my life would I have thought.

It's a nice new scheme. I bet most people will buy them for the "cool" factor rather than it being something they actually model.

NSC boxcar... that is awesome. Great to get more than 2 road numbers on the release. CP Rail 40' PS-1 is nice too. I like the SOO covered gon, even if a foob.

Now, put some schemes from the 80's on those 40' containers and you've got me. CAST, OOCL, YM Line...

Yes, I need some YM Line and OOCL for sure.   I'm not up to speed on what shippers used what types of containers but those two I definitely could use a few of.

But I really just need JBH 53's @James Costello !!!   :trollface: :D

I like the NSC boxcars.  @Atlas Paul must be a wealthy man to afford the bandwidth in distributing the full resolution catalogs :)

That's why those containers are $15ea.  :trollface:   If we all just refused to download the catalog everything would be half price!   :P :D

From my collection. Look how lovely the orange car looks in this scene! Any chance for a switch? I will buy the fleet!

Hey Dave, isn't that Quincy Hill in the background?  And, isn't that the "roundhouse" that was just west of Houghton?

Was doing a little research on the foobie Corn Syrup cars now that they've been officially announced for order taking, and thought I would post a couple of pics for the DOWX cars in case anyone was curious...

Good enough for me to buy one.   I mean, who doesn't need a tank full of "CAUSTIC SODA" running around the layout?   :scared:  :trollface: :P

For reference, here is the series/build info from www.RailroadCarHistory.com :
DOWX 72000-72069, 70 Cars, Code T104, Built June 2002 by UTC in Houston, TX

Also a couple of the HOKX cars...
