This advertisement from Intermountain's Trainfest flyer got me to thinking just
how far freight car modeling has come in the 30 or so (plus or minus) years since
the "resin revolution" ran headfirst into the "prototype modeling" revolution.
Can you even imagine a flyer like this even from a brass importer or craftsman
kit maker back in the dark ages before the 1980's, much less from a mass production
plastic freight car vendor?
These are the best of times. So far. :-)
