Are licensing fees keeping MT from those schemes?

Doubtful.

Well, the Wonder Bread isn't a 4180 airslide (it's larger ... 4566 I think), so if they want to stay proto we won't see that one.

As for the Brach's (and others) - see Tangent.  ;)

I have a bunch of Evans covered hoppers painted up as Magor cars that says otherwise.*  :D

Well, MT has on occasion applied a scheme to the wrong body style if it was close enough. On occasion.

And Tangent might have been willing to pay any fees.

Yeah, but they look identical. I think the only difference was steel vs. aluminum construction.

Evans 4780 had ribbed roof, Magor 4750 had extra bracing on the slope sheets.   Most of the early Magor 4750's had the high-mounted brakewheels.

 :o :D...

MTL has had time to do the Brach's and Prince and Wonder Bread schemes,

These cars have only recently been released by Micro Trains I thought?? :?


I recently watched an auction for one of those B&M Prince  cars, it sold for 56.00 before shipping, so I'd say there's at least a small demand for them..

I do recall some older covered hopper cars with Wonder Bread scheme, but I thought those were special run: Either by NSE/NSC or by BLW or another company that produces low-volume custom painted runs of cars.  Not MTL.

They were two different thoughts. I was pointing out that despite someone saying that MTL has had plenty of time to release the Wonder Bread or Brach's cars, but didn't they only recently release this body style?.


And yes, the wonder bread car was a special run, OLDER MODEL, not an MTL car.
