Dave & Group,

Sorry if I was mis understood by my comment. It was in no means a complaint. I have no issues with Tangent and own quite a few of their models. I just made a statement that most of the modelers in this group model Steam era 1920's thru 1955. I agree that the new scheme selection was well thought out, and I am always glad to see any New HO Freight car model released. But it would have been nice to have one or two of the original release paint schemes re-run: Cities Service, Sinclair, GATX, Deep Rock, Union Starch and UTLX cars. Steam Era modelers need these models, since Sunshine no longer exists. I am sure that many 1960's and 1970's Modelers will want the new models. But some of us, myself included, did Not get a chance to purchase the first run, because they sold out so quickly. What I am saying basically is: nice job on the new models, but a couple more common schemes, UTLX, GATX, Sinclar etc. would have sweetened the mix, so to speak.
