I hope they follow up with a PB70 combine!  I no longer have skin in the game but I'm thrilled to see more PRR love come to N scale!

Congrats to all the Pennsy fans on the list.  40 years of pleading has paid off.

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

I found this on their Facebook. Eventually it will make it to their real website.

Two different roof styles.  Hopefully the couplers can be moved in easily. 

The current ETA on the P70 is August.

Oh no! My priceless stash of Lima P70s suddenly crashed in value! Noooooooooooooooooo!!! :trollface:
Actually, these BLI cars might be good candidates for kitbashing upgraded versions of the P70. At least they won't have that long groove down the sides ....

 :o :drool:
Ouch!   That's gonna hurt the wallet...
Looks like I'll be dumping a bunch of Lima P70's on eBay soon...
And a few 2D-P5 truck kits...

They just need to make a K4... :trollface:
Hey - if they can do a GG1 after Kato and Bachmann did them this century, why not another K4?

Seriously though, a BLI PRR E6 or G5 would look good hauling a string of P70's.  :D

Let's welcome the P70 to the land of softball size rivets...

Two different roof styles. 
Based upon the difference in underbody details, one car is equipped with ice A/C while the other is not.

Which begs the question, what about the required BLI sound module to recreate the noises said A/C would make? Passenger chatter?  :trollface:

Yeah, I expect the releases will closely follow the HO releases: https://www.broadway-limited.com/pennsylvaniap70passengercarssept2017.aspx

Was that on the FB post? If they do show up by the end of year thatll be awesome.

I'm hoping they are great for making modified P70s. And that they sell trucks separately!
