At this rate, I will need another coal mine and a limestone quarry....probably in for CMO and CGW, and maybe a D&M.

What is the date on the D&M hoppers?

Some things are better left unsaid. Which I generally realize right after I have said them.

Ha! I was thinking the same thing! I've got 2 coal dealers, 2 industries with coal fired boilers, a temporary unloading spot on a team track for unloading gravel for some undefined construction project and a spur that leads off layout to a gravel quarry, where I spot gravel hoppers. Oh, and a train of hoppers that just runs in circles on occasion.

All this in order to keep buying Bluford hoppers......CMO, CGW, Peabody, TPW are all upcoming  must haves

I'll take several B&Os and a CB&Q. You guys should do some proper 60' Hy cubes from the 70s or even tank cars from that era. I love what you guys have done with the hoppers.

When do you expect the 2-bay hoppers in M&K paint to actually hit dealers "shelves"?

Any idea on how long the Southern cars were retained in Appalachia Division service?

Thanks guys,

The D&M hoppers have May, 1984 reweigh dates but they looked the same back to the late 70s (due to the U1 dot.)  The M&K hoppers will be in stores in late April along with the big batch of transfer and short-body bay window cabooses. The ICC bay window cabooses will start coming out over the summer.

Any news on the ICC bay windows? REALLY looking forward to the Conrail versions.
You've crossed the walls, excelled
Further along through their hell
All for my heart, I watch you kill
You always have, you always will
Now spread your wings and sail out to me
