    Thanks for letting us know about this. For eight bucks a piece I couldn't resist getting a couple to put in MOW service.

    I thought some of you guys would be interested in those cars, especially at those prices! I'm an N scaler (Used to be in HO) and my eyes popped when I first saw those Branchline cars! And before they sold out to Atlas the BL website had great Pullman info and photos. The BL cars are bound to be better than the Rivarossis (Which were OK) and certainly better than the old Athearn "shorties."

  8. They are pretty good kits. I put two Missouri Pacific cars together this weekend(I have the X-Acto knife knicks in my figures to prove it). It was a bit shocking how detailed these cars are, and it is alot of work putting them together. I still have another I-GN car and a KCS car to do this coming weekend. But these are deffinately worth the $7(I bought all mine before the sell for $15 a piece :( )

    12-1's: Texas Special--St. Louis to San Antonio
    12-1's: Will Rogers--St. Louis-Springfield
    10-1-2's: KC-Florida Special--KC-B'ham (The Frisco's "College" series of sleepers were 10-2-1's, but the company called them, in the timetables, 10-1-2's??) (The types had a similar look on the aisle side)
    8-1-2's: Meteor-St. Louis-OKcy
    8-1-2's: (Different time) Oklahoman (*)--KC-Tulsa
    To name a few and most any of these cars would show up in a troop movement or football special.

    (*) This "Oklahoman" was Tr. 111-112, the Kansas City to Tulsa night train of the 1950's. Not Tr. 101-102, the St. Louis-Oklahoma trains of the late 1960's.
