Cool stuff from them, but what about other manufacturers - anything else announced?

Besides Bluford Shops' hopper announcement, is there anything else?

Fox Valley made a few announcements. They are doing a run of the Ortner hopper which will be capable of body mounts. They also announcements more GP60 schemes including ATSF and SP Speed lettering. Samples of all of those were on the table. On the back wall they had a poster saying they are planning new runs of PS 4750 and FMC 4700 hoppers for 2017, as well as a new B&O boxcar? I forgot to take a photo of the poster.

Conspicuously absent from the booth was anything intermodal related.

Ortner as in the PM/RC 5 bay?

Hopefully the PS4750 and FMC4700 will have Body mounts too..

Cool.. Looking forward to those..

Looks FVM is finally doing releasing the improve RC tooling which is a real good thing. FEC SD70m2 should be good for those who model FEC before 2014.
Which ever side of the track I am on is the right side.

I don't know if anyone else has posted these so I apologize if this is redundant. These are some samples of the forthcoming micro trains line well cars. The metal wheels they announced two years ago are apparently just about ready. Made in the USA.

The ESU decoder for the December delivery of the first InterMountain SD40-2 features true drop in installation. No tabs or wires to mess with. The speaker (In fuel tank) will have a similar set up.
