    Default Toronto Mainline Trains New Releases

    One of my favorite payware vendors for US freight cars is Toronto Mainline Trains. Recently, they've been releasing some nice sets, including new Greenbrier TBOX boxcars, some with the new logo and formatting, insulated (i.e. no exterior refrigeration unit visible) CRYX and LINX/Lineage reefer cars, new DWC/CN cars, etc. But what caught my eye this morning is the upcoming release of the newly-designed BNSF grain hoppers and the Tsunami Gate AOKX hoppers. These cars look really sharp. I'm not involved with TMT (other than being a long-time customer), but just wanted to pass along this info to the MSTS/OR community, as new releases of US rolling stock is very limited now.

    I’d love to buy stuff from TMT but they aren’t taking new accounts. I do have an account at Tiger Trains and have purchased quite I few things from them.

    Agreed - their autoracks are the best! I've been bugging them for awhile to release a set of the FXE racks (silver w/ the red stripes). Would love to get a set of those!

    Just picked up the BNSF and AOKX hoppers mentioned below. Very well done and happy I got them!

    I just brought the BNSF Hoppers and the texturing looks very good. Im not sure if its me? but there is something that does not look quite right with the wheels. They look a bit out of true and the wheel faces dont look quite right? not sure? could just be me with my eye sight.
    Anyway, still a great edition to my collection.

    regards Tom

    He redid the Tropicana reefers last year after I had talked to him about them not being the proper size a couple years back and he did a damn good job on them.Now I have gotten close to 30 sets within the last year from both TMT and Tiger trains I definitely enjoy his products.

    I guarantee you'll be happy with the insulated cars. Also, for anyone thats purchased FBOX, TBOX, or RBOX sets, be on the look out for info on a pink Breast Cancer Awareness bonus car.
