C'mon, Tim. It's Santa Fe. Sales will be off the chart.
Maybe. But that statement does run 180 degrees to a statement
you made regarding Santa Fe stock cars just a few years ago...

Inside tip: forget the RTR models and get kits, which can be lettered with
Ted C.'s excellent decal sets. I just received some of the decals, which
are first rate. And I'm in the process of "Beta testing" a couple of kits,
which I'm finding to be among the best engineered and most accurately
detailed HO freight cars ever. Everything fits right and, if you can
follow simple instructions, you'll get a superb model with free standing
wire grabs and all the right bells and whistles.
I saw the test shot at Naperville, and it looked beautiful. But
I have ABSOLUTELY NO USE for them, to paraphrase Marty. I wish I
did, but I just don't.

I'm looking forward to the Intermountain FGEX reefer, which I hope
will be offered as a kit too.
