I see they're doing them in HO. Good for HO modelers!

I can't wait for em in N. I really like these cars.

Is it just me, or are these really similar to the Procor ones Rapido is doing? Would be happy to see either in N since all we have for pellet cars are the Atlas Centerflows...

Same size, but differences. Independently they look similar but put them side by side and they're definitely different cars. Kind of like Berwick, Pullman-Standard, Evans/USRE 5277 cuft boxcars are all similar but distinctly recognizably different.

Pullman-Standard has the "clerestory" arched roof similar to their 4750 standard covered hopper, uneven rib spacing, and a distinctive reinforcing plate across the end sill.

Procor has even rib spacing, a more curved roof line, and visible bolster ends below the side sill.

Did ST say they were doing these in N?

We really need exterior post plastics hoppers.
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...

They haven't.

I hope that's a "yet".

I agree. Seeing a handful of these behind Strasburg #90 was one of my favorite 80s Railfan photos.

If these come to N, I would be "forced" to get at least one. :scared:
