Walthers has just announced for January 2010 delivery a 41' open ballast hopper in their Gold-Line series. It will be a three pack with road #'s 97100, 97159, and 97131. The Walthers stock # will be 932-34241 with an MSRP of $49.95. The description says that the Modeler (that's us!) will have to install the wire grab irons. YUK! I'm too spoiled! Compared to the photo on Mike Condren's website of car # 97123 taken at Memphis on 6/5/81 this model is a dead ringer. Bob Hoover FriscoFriend P.S. I will be shipping high quality white Kansas limestone from the on-line rock quarry near Severy, KS to all Frisco points East hopefully by next summer at the latest.
