I'm liking the BN hopper. Anyone have a proto pic of it?

Its in the BN color guide, I can shoot you a fb message of it. Might have seen a shot online too.

Also the patch on the BN car isn't dark green, should be black.  Agree the price is a bit high, but I'll probably still get one.

Ike,

I notice going back to the BLW site linked that they are already sold out. You will have to look elsewhere for the BN hopper.

And, its the only one sold out. Law of supply and demand suggests they could have priced it higher given the shortage.......so it can't be too pricey other than in your (and a few others) opinions.  Frankly, almost the only cars I order now (having 700 plus, which is more than enough) is the MT weathered and graffiti versions, which make my fleet look more post 2000 than it would otherwise.  I am glad they are doing them, at almost any price.......I recall seeing some third party vendors charging up to $40-60 per car before MT got in the game. 

That said, it does look like a two color scheme, and at least in the way back time machine, MT used to charge extra for every pass, so not sure why it seems a bit higher than others, but am sure there is a reason.

It's a very dark grey we used.  Black was too stark.

maybe folks should wait until they actually have the SOM car before dogging the colors?   Just sayin  :D

Saw these in the hobby shop.  They match the official MTL photo.

It's rare that the Micro-News and media pack photos are not accurate depictions of the models.
