Glad to see the bankruptcy won't stop the Peabody hoppers from rolling along in N scale.  :lol:

Something that was missing from this update that was posted on other sites that I find very interesting and helpful for those who ask the question "When did XYZ start/stop ? etc

"Also we have a number of new additions to the Timeline Resource Pages starting here: http://www.bluford-shops.com/bluford_93_024.htm "

I think you are on the verge of cornering the N scale hopper market. 

You really need to coerce Walthers to bring out a new issue of their steel mill, and convince someone to market a REALLY big coal mine- so we have somewhere for these to go.

Glad they are not all released at the same time cause there is "so much want" in every announcement.

When can we expect to see some more of those big, obnoxious auto parts box cars?

Would like to see a C&O quad door 85' boxcar and some more black NW ones with white lettering.

Yep. I'd love to see some 8 door "regular" Conrail ones. I love the big wheels, but the smaller can opera were far more common.

And please refer to Atlas and ESM for the proper shade of Conrail Tuscan Red!  :)

It has been quite a while since we've done the 86' boxcars, especially the quad door versions so we'll have to talk about that. I'm not finding any pics of quad door cars in C&O. Did you mean double door?

Cant find any pictures of a C&O quad door yet, the only one I know of is the Concor model I should know better than to trust they were prototypically accurate being since the car itself is way to short  :facepalm: thank goodness you and Trainworx stepped up to the plate and made an accurate model. As far as Conrail goes how about the double door large can opener  8)

+1 for the large short logo Conrail 4 door cars.  Make that plus 9 if you put out three road numbers (six extra cars to renumber).  There are lots of photos on the CRHS website.

Thanks.
