Which ever side of the track I am on is the right side.

Those well cars are pretty tempting.  :facepalm: Good for 2008 and beyond.

The BNSF Fuselage Transportation set looks good! Says due July 2017.
A pair of 89ft flat cars and probably a pair of 50ft flat cars to carry the two 737 loads and two tool boxes.
I really am interested in seeing the 737s. Says "two plastic-injection fuselages".  I don't model BNSF but this is too cool to pass up.

The only injection molded 737 fuselages I have ever been able to find were 1:144, 1:180, and 1:200 scale.  But nowadays there are properly scaled 1:160 fuselages on Shapeways.  One of my many projects is to make decals for them (for my friend's Boeing train).

I wonder if MT might be making their own fuselages?  They wouldn't be hard to do.

The SFRD ice reefers.... are they the old PFE body with a Santa Fe paint job, or is there some new tooling? Can't tell much from the graphics....

Heck I didn't see that announcement, definitely want a set of those. Even like you say, don't model BNSF but too cool to pass up.

Yeah me too, but I am resisting ... essential cars on my part of the N&W, but I have decals and some more accurate cars to work with. 8)

Can't say I'm really interested in the BNSF airplane set per se, but I might be interested in splitting one with someone else who's interested in modeling this:

Need to be a member to see the photo. Does it happen to show bunch of derailed flat cars and 737 fuselages scattered on the banks of a river?  :trollface:

The Gas Tank Loads are available separately, I'm wondering how else they could be used.

Their website is kinda confusing that way.  New releases page is just what is coming to dealer shelves this month, there is more new stuff in the Newsletter.

Some things are better left unsaid. Which I generally realize right after I have said them.
