Doesn't appear to be any better looking, and probably not

Apparently "Empire Builder" is no longer just a train. I can't want to see what other manufacturers they try to deep six. Predatory for no good reason. In the not too distant future, we'll all be buying from WalMart, er, Horizon, and Costco, I mean Walthers. Well, at least the trucks appear to be something slightly different, even though they are wrong for USRA hoppers.
