"O" scale again!

The plastic couplers made by San Juan Car Co. are excellent in
appearance, and will mate with Clousers, and even Kadees. I have an
easier time working with brass - just a personal preference!

HOWEVER, I wish San Juan Car Co. would make a GOOD PENNSY FREIGHT
TRUCK in "O" scale - something we have been waiting MANY years for!
There is so much demand out there for a good plastic Pennsy truck that
the SJCC owners could retire on that one product alone! A. T. Kott


San Juan will likely be able to retire off the ASF A-3 that he is doing. He
is even thinking of a roller bearing version for some odd reason.

Steve Grabowski has the 2D-F8 done but for some reason has not released it.
I agree as to the need.
