    They do look awesome, but I would prefer some not quite so "new" that is with ladders that went all the way to the top of the car and with roofwalks.

    Those cars look very nice. I believe that the one with the double doors were meant for hauling automobile parts or maybe even the cars themselves. How many other roads are planned for these cars?

    I have no idea. There is a MoPac 50 footer similar to the DRGW in the 70 ton cement hopper photo. Scott seems to be ramping up production with Open Rails 1.0 on the horizon.

    I'm like an old SD9; It Growls, Howls & squeaks...but it will run forever!
