Flicking through the Sep/Oct 2018 N Scale Railroading last night and caught the following:

Quote
Exactrail is working on an all-new N Trinity boxcar and N Airflow-2 hoppers and are working on a new body mounted coupler

Interesting news on a few fronts.....

Can we dream of icicles ?

What they need to do is another run of TTX bulkhead flat cars...

I have never seen a company under utilize tooling to the level ER does. They have literally dozens of high quality cars with only a few road names each.

Rivaled only by MT and their PS-4427 CF Covered Hopper?

Ugh... The 4427. I think ER, MTL, Walters, and Trainworx all made versions of this and all did only one run.

I hope Atlas update their molds a bit and cranks these out like no tomorrow. They would really component their Thrall hopper in the Trainman line.

My guess on MTL is that they are working on making walkways out of something slightly less time consuming to make.

Extended draft gear coupler boxes would be useful
