Re: New NMRA Living Legends #4 car available
- Hi Randy,
I have emailed Bob Chait, the NMRA special run car guru, to find out
what the Z car will be. You are correct that they have used MTL cars
for Z up to now. Since MTL doesn't presently offer a hopper I'm just
as curious as you to know what the NMRA has selected. Since these
NMRA special run cars are the only items that I collect in Z, I
already sent in my order.
Will advise ASAP.

- I have heard that MT has purchased undecorated cars from Pennzee. The
printing will be done in house at MTL. I think this sounds like a wonderful start to
a good relationship between Z scale greats. I need to order 1 as well!

- do you remember that the last NMRA hopper(Milwaukee Union Terminal) in all
other scales was released as a 40 gondola in Z ?
