Are these the same coaches that were sold to the B&M in the late 1940s?

I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.

Not sure @nickelplate759 ...  there are a few survivors listed on the Reading Tech & Historical Society site:

Can anyone do a summary on the prototypes- length, height, manufacturer, dates, other railroads that copied the design (or close) etc.  I do wish that manufacturers who are 'assessing interest', 'requesting reservations', 'opening pre-orders' would include such basics, since they've already done that research, and it makes the yes/no decision much easier.

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

Reading F7's, T1's and now this!  I think I died and went to heaven.  I sure hope they make the cars.

Folks,

In my personal experience with him as a former customer, I can't say this strongly enough: Buyer Beware. Caveat Emptor. Proceed with Extreme Caution.
