Awesome to see these RBL boxcars we need good earlier boxcars. That Conrail and Milwaukee will be a definite purchase.  8)

Well, it is certainly worth $1 more than the Bachmann boxcars (different prototypes, if they have prototypes) with MSRP of $34.

If you check out the scenic accent line, they have a pack of 10, count them 10, N scale cinder blocks for $5.95.  I am getting old, I can remember when they would sell you a whole N scale cinder block building for $5.95.

No undecs listed for the RBLs.  This does not please me.

Looking at the MILW boxcars, I noticed no mention of body-mounted couplers.  If these are the old Walthers tooling, it would be nice if Atlas added them.  The drawings show extended draft gear, but drawings can't always be trusted. 

They do claim "wire cut levers", which would almost require body mounted couplers.  Has any company ever included cut levers on a mass-produced N scale freight car?

The Tangent quads do and I want to say Scaletrains and BLMA have too, but I haven’t checked.

The RBL is all new tooling, and will have body mounted couplers.  We have worked with Moloco to bring this car from their HO line to N scale.

The 20K tank cars, pickups and 3d printed details also look enticing.  Mr. Wallet is sweating.

If your memory includes a photograph, send it along.  These were based on photos we were able to locate.

You think that is steep? Just imagine what it could be if these models were made in USA.  :D  :trollface: :trollface:
