      So that's one body style we need, although you don't really see many of them.

      I reiterate that the most commonly seen body style we're missing is 57' spine cars for pig trains since the 70s.

      > Folks,

      Intermountain has announced its intent to produce modern mechanical reefers in 8 paint jobs (including, I think, UP, BN, ARMN, PFE, ATSF, Golden West, GN and WP), available in early 2014. There will be 8 paint jobs initially, each offered in 6 road numbers. I think the earliest build date is the Santa Fe, sometime in the 60s.

      As far as I can see, when these come out, the only major body style we will be lacking is 57' spine cars. I've also been urging Stonebridge Models to produce a resin coil car load for MTL 40' flat cars to supplement their resin coil car load for MTL 50' gondolas, but no response so far. The 40' flat car reinforced for coil car service is much more common than gondolas for coil transport.

      Can anyone else think of another body style that Z scale needs, aside from specialized MOW equipment?
