NYC coaches (Was timonium report)


I am cross posting this part of Bill's message because of its relevance to NYC and passenger car modelers. If I remember correctly Funaro & Camerlengo (sp?) produced a resin kit for the NYC coach some years ago. I remember deciding not to buy because the clerstory roof was a solid casting, like the old Walthers wood roofs but much heavier. Thus I suspected the car would be top-heavy.

Steve must be pretty confident that the Branchline coaches won't be out in the forseeable future.

I had the first chance I have had in a long time to talk to Steve
Funaro, and while I always take what he says with a grain of salt,
things do eventually come to fruition. He is slowed down because
his rubber supplier also makes air filters for Abrams tanks and
Bradley Armored Fighting Vehicles.

He also had a one piece New York Central coach which is new, and a
LV short lowside gondola with a deep fishbelly underframe that I
do not remember ever seeing.
