Not me. Mine's already screaming bloody murder.

Um, I didn't know you were a Thomas Kinkade art collector. :trollface: :D

How prototypical is the Jack Frost cane sugar car? Can't find anything on neither www.rrpicturearchives.net nor www.rr-fallenflags.org.

Would it have travelled on New York Central or PRR?

The GN box car looks great, too. But I need more brown (aka "mineral red") box cars from the sixties. I have way too many fancy box cars.

Was wondering about that myself ...

The same scheme has been done by Lionel: https://toytrainfactoryoutlet.com/rolling-stock/1595-lionel-26137-jack-frost-tank-car.html

And in G by USA Trains: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1260/4747/products/3862869.jpg?v=1489570715

These examples had a platform around the dome, the MTL version doesn't. Would love to see a proto photo if there is one!

Several companies do use tank cars to move corn syrup

But I suspect that the "prototype" for the Jack Frost tank car is the same as the prototype for green ATSF stock cars- which is to say...Lionel.

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

Tank cars could also be used for molasses, which would be a natural product for a sugar company, before corn syrup became so common.

In NYC a need to retard the setting of a concrete pour due to a construction worker IIRC that was stuck in it . They said they used " liquid sugar " for the retardation of it setting . So maybe they sell and ship pure liquid  sugar .

Can we get those construction trucks separate?

Once the dust settles I suspect we will start offering some of this stuff separate.

You missed the MOST IMPORTANT announcement:

All N Scale Releases will now have blackened trip pins!

 :)   

This is awesome. YMMV
