New MTL Z scale body style
Micro-Trains has released a new Z scale body style without an
announcement. In the July Micro-News they show a release of CP Rail
Gundersons. It clearly says "53" on the sides, showing that they have a
well capable of stowing 53' containers. Since the old MTL Z scale
Gunderson only had a 48' well, this must be a new body style, although it
has the old 540 part number. Surely MTL would never deliberately try to
deceive their customers by claiming a car with a 48' well actually has a
53' well? If they were to do that, it would be a pretty shoddy business
practice, not to mention really bad modeling.
