New MTL DODX 68' Flat and Injection molded M1 Tank kit

Here is a clip out of the new micro news.  This will be all new tooling from the ground up with the added bonus of injection molded M1 tanks to fit on the flats.  We will also have chain tie downs either injection molded or photo etched.  This was announced at the Sunday breakfast but I understand the even wasn't well attended as usual.  Though I would give you guys a look.

The DODX flats look great Joe - I love the inclusion of the tanks and the tie-down chains.

I hope these are very popular for you.

How about some DODX 90X series cabooses and some nuke flask cars too? That would be an awesome set and an interesting through train on any modern layout. Gotta love any modern train that still has a caboose, especially if the occupants are loaded for bear...

Sometimes, DODX flats roll across the CSX Hanover Subdivsion, coming off of G&W YorkRail from BAE Systems in York, but they carry M88 Tank Recovery vehicles.  Just so happens someone on Shapeways has a 1/144 model of the M88.  Wonder if they will rescale it.

Wow, and the hits just keep on coming.   :facepalm:

Very nice announcement for n-scale.  Would be neat to see in Z too but I think I know better.    8)

The Navy cars are captive services? There is only a few places were the navy would move missiles to ships and they all have docks.

A couple pictures of 40005 show the car in Kansas City, KS and Jacksonville, FL in 2009 and 2014

Is the 4-axle flatcar a DODX design. or is it a commercial design found on other roads?  I assume the 6-axle version is unique to the DOD, since it was commissioned by them.

Here is a N Scale M88 on Shapeways https://www.shapeways.com/product/THZ96UV2J/n-scale-m88-tank-retreiver?optionId=62879852

Also I do not remember seeing any loads like Set #2 with the barrels pointing forward.

I'll take #1 and #3....

I also vote for the flask cars, although they would never been seen with the flats....
