Does anyone know if the Pennsy or UP runner packs cars are new car numbers and/or car names?

I hope so.  If not, I'm out.

Hopefully I have some 2D-P5s on hand for those coaches.

EDIT:  I may be out anyway...  I don't need more RPOs or observation cars...just the coaches.  I was hoping it would be a coach 3-pack by itself.

For reference, this is the PRR runner pack:

I don't see why they wouldn't. They're a new run, aren't they?

Hmm... where are all the
Southern heavyweights...?


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

The runners pack for the PRR is quite disappointing as I was hoping for a three car runners pack with the paired window coach. Just like they did with the 10-1-2 and 12-1.  :(

Furthermore, they are offering the 10-1-2 and 12-1 heavyweight sleeper Cars in Tuscan red with no lettering.

Does Microscale offer decals for turning these models into cars used by PRR? Does anybody know the correct order number?

(Wheels of Time offers an N scale sheet for Southern Pacific prototypes (Item # 980060), but no one else seems to catch on.)

There's only two coaches in this set, right? A five-pack coaches set would have been interesting. Apparently MTL believes 8-car sets of all the same freight car will sell but nobody'd be interested in a passenger train with 5 coaches... who ever heard of such a thing?
The UP set would have been better a 5-coach pack too. This IS N scale where long trains are the norm for home layouts not the HO-can-only-run-them-at-big-convention-HO-module-assemblages exception.
