Picked up some NYC, El and Chessie hoppers, Its hard on the wallet when they release so many good road names all at once.  :D

Thanks for the heads up.  That turned into an expensive morning.

I got a two pack and a single Old and Weary/Westmoreland Coal (they did not have a three pack) and a three pack/two pack/single Beefsteak and Onions.

I am glad I reserved my B&O USRA twins as they apparently sold out quickly at MBK; only 3 singles left as of today. The date of my reservation is May 15, 2017.

My order of C&EI hoppers is in, to go along with several I have in black and gray C&EI paint schemes and several other roads from previous releases.  I don't think I've bought a "non-Bluford" open hopper in the last 5 years. 

Don't have a working layout at the moment, so can't say how they run on trackwork, but they sure are pretty.

FINALLY, something with Old and Weary reporting marks to go with my IM FTs and Atlas caboose.  MBK had only the single and two pack in Out and Walk, so that is what I got.  I did manage to get the B&O three-pack, two-pack and single, as well.  I was surprised that MBK still had B&Os.
