20 bucks each, undecorated!?! Great price, given that trucks and couplers would be $12.   I think I am going to be in for a bunch of those baggage cars and a couple RPOs, and maybe a combine.  The coach and combine look like the same prototypes as the old Bachmann cars (CNW suburban cars, I think).  I don't have need for short coaches, but could see kitbashing them into longer cars, and they are priced to make that reasonable.

Somebody say "thank you" to the Atlas guys for me.  Any ETA?

I need to find a part time job to fund my 2017 acquisitions.

6 wheel and 4 wheel trucks  :o

Interesting and cool - gotta see if the baggage, combine, or RPO is a suitable stand in for something I need. :D

I'd be very excited about this if I thought parts would be available.  :P

At $20 per, the parts are available.

Truck-mounted couplers but the holes already are in the floor for body-mounts.

I suppose that's not awful but would much prefer being able to get just the body shells.  Is the RPO mirrored on the other side?

Any chance of these being done in the CNJ 'Blue Comet' scheme?

Well, give or take a sill.  But definitely fills a need for the "standard" 6 window RPO.  Looks like it will work for lots of roads.

Out of all my projects,  adding the sill will be a walk in the park in comparison.

Given some of your projects, Adam, that is no doubt true.  Wish I had half of your skill. based on some of what I have seen in photos of your work.

I didn't take note.  If I have time tomorrow, I will check.

Thank you for the kind words Thomas!
Ive noticed you're good with passenger car prototypes, much better than i, so what can we do with the rest of these cars? Do you see anything else us Santa fe and UP modelers could turn these into?
