Re: UP box cars
Tom or Gail Madden <tgmadden@...>
Ted Culotta has done magnificent new masters forThat's what it takes. Martin does lots of Santa Fe cars because Charlie
Slater makes lots of high quality masters for them. Frank Hodina's interests
favor the midwest. Martin's a fan of the MP/T&P/SLSF. (Although you'd think
that would make Martin a UP fan, considering Big Yellow absorbed those
roads.) Don't underestimate Tricia Lofton's input on what kits Sunshine
should do. She keeps a very tight rein on the business side of Martin's
operations, and a well-known CB&Q modeler says it's tough to get Sunshine to
do 'Q cars because Tricia says they have limited sales appeal.
Then there's the licensing problem for UP models, but that's not a subject
for this forum.....
