OOF.... that is a lot of great late 90's schemes on those containers. I'll need several! Probably pick up several of the Berwicks hen they go on sale.
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

Same here.  Mr. Wallet looks to be in a bit of trouble....

The Allied containers are of interest simply because I had direct involvement with them back in the day. I still need to figure out the right intermodal cars to haul the micro trains containers that would have been in service in the mid 90’s.

I'm really glad I collected enough old Deluxe containers in those schemes that I won't 'have to' spend money I may not have.

Husky Stacks (MT and MDC/Athearn), Maxi-III (Deluxe) and  Walthers Thrall cars.  Various upgrades required to turn some of them into quality models.

Also N Scale Kits versions available for some.

So I take it those KCS cars are good to go then? Appropriate for the mid 80s? I know I've asked about that before... I think the answer is yes, but I want to check with my local expert.

They are good, but not in huge number - KCS had more PS's at that point if I recall.  I'll root around and see if I can get you firm ratios . . . .
