UP specific detail!
Does that mean it includes a demoralized crew load?  :trollface:

Great news about the roof swap.  I'm still a bit on the fence about these though since the Greenbriar prototype has straight ribs rather than the NSC-signature flared ribs (which are perfect for the TBOX).  I suspect I'll be in for a 3-pack anyway.

It would be awesome if it were possible to tool up straight ribs as well though. :ashat:

Put enough bbq sauce on the ribs and no one will notice.

A new era for MT specifically, and perhaps N scale freight cars in general.  For so long, mfgs put so much attention into underside details, while roofs were pretty generic.  If the tooling is simple enough, it's going to please a lot of modelers.
