Very nice indeed!   Hoping for graffiti versions and perhaps the waffled 60' TBOX!

I think graffiti cars are now a thing of the past based on recent threads and, if I understand it correctly, info directly from MT. At least with proto-accurate graffiti anyway.

I'm not into the graffiti, but these are so nice IMO, that I can see trying to get 6 or so more to round out things.

MTL will be getting all my spare change for a while.

Did the railroad companies get angry?

No, the taggers got greedy and let's just leave it at.

Wouldn't the taggers claiming its their artwork set themselves up for prosecution?

The original info about graffiti MTLJoe posted few weeks back (and the subsequent comments in that thread) did a good IMO job discussing the situation and some legalities, but the thread was deemed too much of a controversial subject, so it was hidden from view.  If it was up to me, I would have just locked the thread and left it visible, just for the types of questions that come up, just like they did now.

Thanks. Never saw that thread. And I love my Microtrains models with "Artwork". I'll treasure them from now on even more. :)
