I think I got a sneak peak this morning having access as a dealer with a booth..
I won't say what it is.. but scanning through comments..
I dont think anyone has guessed correctly..
It IS brand new tooling..
I think It will be well recieved.
Must be an N scale AEM-7.

Neither... but anyone who models the 1990s will want them...

I wouldn't want an AEM-7 but that would be cool..  (I want a Rohr Turboliner)  @rapidotrains

Then the only things left are track, vehicles, and structures.  I guess it is a '90s vehicle.

It's an N scale PC desktop with an 80486 processor running Windows 3.1.  Everyone wanted one in the early 90s.

Dear manufacturers,
If you don't make it, I can't buy it.

Or passenger car.

But I can't think of any that have not been done before unless it is a very road-specific prototype.

I was thinking maybe a police Crown Vic, but that would adhere to "paint scheme" rather than "road name". So MoW vehiecle?

48' trailer would be my next guess. Did Pines produce any?
Giving me love
All on your canvas
All of the girls
All on the mattress

Lock the door
Dim the lights
Bottoms up
I'm in love
And you too

You're the best I can do
You're the best I can do
You're the...
You're the...

Spice Girls? No wait, they were early 2000s.

Not impressive so far if it's not a loco or a freight car.

Whatever it is, let me be the first to say, I’m already disappointed.  :trollface:

"Track" is probably out as well, as that wouldn't be decade-specific.  1990s track doesn't look that different from 1970s, or 2020s.

Be well

Given the 1990s hint, I don't see it making a dent in my train budget, either, whatever it is.

Which reminds me, I need to go through my rolling stock and weed out the last few with service dates after 1956 and either re-letter or put them up for sale with my few "modern" cars purchased in the 1970s, or that came in "lots" purchased on eBay. (With a few exceptions for cars given to me by my kids, when they were kids. :) )

 Ah well, back to the resin kit boxcars I was working on....
