Hmmm. Tongue firmly in cheek...smiling....If one applies the Dave

OTOH, if one were to...for some reason...model say two days [ as in
May 14 and May 15, 1954 ] AND had proof that 4 of the Rr-30 reefers
were in one train on one of those days in the area
modeled...Bingo! could run 4 of them. No idea what to do about
modeling and running the other 2400 or so cars active on those days
in the area of the RR modeled. Not my problem.


Complain, complain, complain.

Ya got 6.67777% of the entire class in the darn Athearn ad already. Print a
copy, stick on the layout room wall someplace and tell everybody you didn't
need to actually buy one, you've like a lifetime supply of operating session
appearances on the wall, <point at this time> right over there. 8-)

Now you can spend the money somewhere else!

P.S. if anybody at Athearn is reading, any negative opinions expressed in
this thread that relate to the number of prototype cars this model is based
upon bear no relationship whatsoever to the suitability, marketability, and
sales that would naturally occur in response to modeling the WP/SN/DRGW 46'
GS gondolas.
