"...a C39-8" - the hunchback of Norfolk Southern.  A loco only a model railroader would love.

Well, that's cool. Both the loco and the car. C39-8 is not my era nor RR, but I agree, it's enough of an oddball to get my attention. Happy for you guys.

The hopper is great - era's good, so I will likely pick up a couple in PC.

Hard to believe those C39-8 photos are actually N Scale!  :o

I'm down for a pair as well to support Scale Trains.  Never thought I'd see this in N Scale... 

They are already showing the first NS road number as being sold out....  :o

I’m in for two. Just curious, I glanced quick but was there a release date? And I wonder if the 4785 release will put a nail in Intermountain’s version that is still saying “needs reservations”.  For the freight car experts, is this even the same car?

I guess we can figure future N releases will be what was released in HO earlier.  Does the mold making scale down or is it because all the research work was done for HO?

Those are pure filth. I love smut like that!

I know this is a weird position but I think I'm a bigger fan of GEs than EMDs, at least from a railfanning perspective.

I just saw the introductory video for these. The look really nice. Some of the details seem a bit oversized, while others seem very fine. I'm sure they'll look great once weathered up a little bit!

With IM and BLI producing them and an occasional Kato release, I wouldn't count on it.

They announced these just because I finished updating all my C39-8s for shapeways.

I'll be in for a couple of these.
