    What Boxcab said! I've had the 40' M&StL box cars booked marked for years.

    Dave, great to see products starting to come in again - they are badly needed.

    The announcement of undecs is interesting -- have you considered offering decals as well? The Microscale offerings don't really meet my needs (mostly 70s-90s era stuff for the 20 and 40 ft cans). Examples I'd be most keen on for the international fleet are: MSC, China Shipping, COSCO, Triton, OOCL, Hyundai (off the top of my head). For me, this would make the sale.

    Oh, and I might as well say it: we *desperately* need 53' containers in JB Hunt, Schneider, HUB green, and maybe UMAX; and 53' trailers in *any* form at all. (But you know that.)

    And a third voice joining the chorus . . . . especially since my wife spent a summer in college answering phone as Schnieder's corporate HQ.

    Boxcab and Hoyden,

    The green M&StL will be in the first run of boxcars from the new factory. We are having a few some issues getting them into production again but they will at least get on to the production schedule this year.

    Thanks for hanging in there!

    Dave

    Gary,

    Honestly, the amount of time and resources it would take to produce container decals would be as much or more than to produce runs of those containers. Our primary emphasis will still be on runs of decorated containers and the names you mention are all on our radar for future runs. Considering that we would most likely have Microscale print them for us, there isn't a real opportunity for us to make money on those projects. I have to confess that we are in business to make money, no matter how much I enjoy modeling.

    As for 53' containers and trailers, I sure do miss that tooling. Eventually we will get it back or tool up again but we need to have the revenue stream back where it was to get more tooling made. Thank you all for adding your voices to the chorus. I hear you!

    Dave

    For these three cars, I will most certainly keep an avid watch. :)
