Re: New Walthers USRA 55 ton hopper


Since the Accurail models for the C&O had the straight road
name, it would be nice if Walthers had gone with the donut -
especially with the original steam donut. I wonder if the car
numbers are correct but different.

Doesn't appear to be any better looking, and probably not
even as good as, the Accurail model:
Apparently "Empire Builder" is no longer just a train. I can't want

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
trucks appear to be something slightly different, even though
they are
wrong for USRA hoppers.
