I'm very happy the cabooses are listed already as I was just thinking last night about what could happen to the prices of our trains in the near future.  :scared:

Fortunately we should be good for 2017.  I hope so, as it affects me more!  :scared:

Glad I didn't buy the (not quite right) MT version of the McCloud paint scheme!    :D :trollface: :lol:

That 5077 looks like a great start to a hole filler in a lot of rosters.

Agreed.  That WP box car, although the model pictured is HO, is hawt.  Hopefully, the N scale model will feature the lettering also wrapping over the ribs as nice as the HO model was done.  I want one.

I'm glad to see they are doing another run of the PD Hoppers. I love mine from the first run. Hopefully the next run will have some more reporting marks that fit my layout.

Without trying to start anything political I think Jason was referring to some of the things our president-elect has said about what he wants to do regarding the trade imbalance with China.    :scared:

Congressional leaders have already addressed the proposed import tariff, with advice that the President cannot act on this alone, that it requires Congress to pass legislation. It was specifically discussed by the folks in the know (the Congress members influencing these policies) that imposition of large tariffs typically result in trade wars, so there was no interest in this particular solution for the foreseeable.

Ah, OK.  Thanks.   I typically only wear my rhetoric filter when viewing Facebook.   Should've known.

True enough...although taking a call from the president of Taiwan alone might have impacts as well.  The Chinese are very sensitive about that.  Either way I suspect our economic relationship with China will get more complicated no matter what legislation is passed or not.
