And I thought they even read Mike Brock's backdrop painting article
too, what with the Rockies in the background! ;-)

I hear they have a killer Rutland green and yellow paint scheme for
these cars too...

(Seriously though, Marklin did contact John Nehrich for info on doing
that scheme on these cars, who, of course, told them that would be
somewhat less than correct. Needless to say, that raised more than a
few concerns about how Marklin will market these models.)

My very first stop during the National Train Show at Lauderdale will be at
the Marklin booth. Does this mean I'll know anything that isn't known now?
The answer to that is best done by using the same reply that a member of the
ex SP 4449 crew gave me when I asked if I called the SP dispatcher back in
'91 [at the Railfare] would he give me the scheduled time of 4449's
departure from Sacramento......."Probably not"....and my answer would be
given in the same tone as his. Still...

Mike Brock....What? Me need an H-70-1?
