More BLI PRR P70 Coaches coming

Broadway Limited has on it's website now new listings for another run of the PRR P70 coaches due February 2021.

https://www.broadway-limited.com/nscalepennsylvaniap70passengercars.aspx?fbclid=IwAR1X8zdRGTZcLSrRKaNGpX91KGKbCIBwtAgwUFo8yEmR5WXJJkIaZTlsbLQ

Looking at the listings I see coaches painted in schemes targeting the 1931-1937, 1939-1941 and 1945-1948 appearances.  There are two, two-packs available in each timef rame and single cars are available as well.  Cars are labeled P70 for Non-AC and P70R for cars with Ice AC.

New this time are cars lettered for 1940's PRSL with two two-packs and single cars available.

Also new are "Fantasy Schemes" for CNJ, NYC (Ugh), MEC, CN and a Christmas Red/Green car.

Maybe that is a forthcoming 3rd run.

In looking up the HO cars I see they have a new run of HO due in January which has the same set of paint schemes as the N scale announcement.

Doesn't everybody need some NYC P-70s in their 20th Century consist?  :trollface:

If you don't know what it is, don't throw it out.

No coaches, not even PRR coaches, in the 20th Century consist.  Keeping the riffraff away.

the PRR Futura scheme coaches (1939-41) are pretty cool.

You could put them behind the Rapido FL9 locos to simulate a commuter train.

Got it, but my post was to intended to show that there could be a prototype-based use for those "NYC" coaches - assuming you can overlook that the car type is wrong.

They're heeeeeeeere!

Factory Direct Trains listed them as "in Stock" a few days ago and today my Not-So-Local Hobby shop in Cincinnati shipped me my order.  They should show up at the other shops pretty quickly as Walthers started shipping them out to shops a few days ago also.

I just inventoried a bunch of foobie Blue Comet ones at the LHS. Sure they'll be gone by my next visit.  Curious what people will pull them with.

This is a thing that Kato typically nails.

I've long thought that manufacturers don't do enough to align entire themes with releases.

For example, if Atlas is going to release a bunch of C&O GP9s, it'd be a good idea to do a release of their C&O cabooses at the same time.

I'm sure it'd be a nightmare to manage with their supply chains, but it'd open up a bunch of marketing opportunities for them if they could pull it off.

Exactly.  I don't understand why Bachmann hasn't released a NE style caboose in the CNJ scheme (a RR that had these) when they offer CNJ locos (GP-7 and 0-6-0), other than they are Bachmann... :facepalm:
