Wa;lthers Mainline NW-2 Phase 5 Announcement

Nelson Moyer
 

I just heard that Walthers is coming out with yet another NW-2 phase 5, when BLI has already issued them, and nobody but Kato has issued NW-2 Phase 1, and those aren’t DCC/sound or readily available anymore. If anyone has any commercial clout with Walters, please implore them to issue NW-2 phases that haven’t already been released, especially Phase 1 to replace the Kato model. I’m running BLI phase 5’s only until phase 1’s become available, the sooner the better. The CB&Q had 45 NW-2’s, and exactly one was Phase 5.

Re: [Non-DoD Source] [RealSTMFC] PRR container DD1A color

Gatwood, Elden J SAD
 

Lester;

I find Scalecoat a little dark for my tastes. I prefer Modelflex Light Tuscan Oxide Red for a late forties-early fifties Circle Key-era paint job. I do not believe any DD1A containers or flats were repainted in Shadow Keystone P&L, if any were even still extant by that date.

I am about to move a resin Funaro & Camerlengo container Flat Car kit 8120 to the paint shop. The instructions for the car body state Scalecoat PRR Freight Red, a red moving toward maroon, to my eyes when viewing paint chips. I am guessing containers, DD1A, the same color. Is this correct?

Great, thanks.  Good detail photos of the carbody and lettering, and two different cars.

Lester,

 

I either give some containers a different FCC or at least weather some differently than others.  They were moved around and did not always stay in a group.  I’ll let others comment on the “correct” FCC.  Depending up the era that you model, there is will a multitude of opinions.

I use Windows Live email if I click on 'reply to sender' I get a pop up that wants me to 'add an account'. So I go to the group site, write my email then select "Private" in the lower right corner, then send in the lower left.

So calling people "control freaks" is just your way of being friendly?

I guess a lack of self awareness comes with being dull.

The individual e-mail address would not appear in my browser but it appeared easily on my iPad.  The servers have more variances than some freight cars that we have discussed.

Personally, I didn't know about the REPLY TO SENDER prior to this fiasco. I just read the messages and don't read all the misc crap below them. I'm now smarter thanks to Mr. Rudeness and will do that in the future.
