    We now have 10 people that support a special run. That is 10% of our goal. We desperately need more support to make this happen.

    FYI, the 50-footer shown in my previous post was built in 1956.

    I am curious about the next TB Special Run car that was already reportedly in the planning stages after the MISSOURI-ILLINOIS SPECIAL RUN CAR ? hmmmmmmmm

    This is amongst possibilities, on the table.

    The special run I'm promoting is separate from the TB run. This one is strictly Frisco. We now have 13 people who have shown support for a special run that's 13%.

    What I meant was there had been some mention, prior to yours, of TB doing a Frisco car. Charlie being a Frisco person.....

    There have been a bunch of suggestions made in the past year or so.

    Charlie is working on another special run but I'm not able to say what it is at this time. I'm working on a completely separate project. The more fires in the oven the better. We can always use new rail cars.
    May be Charlie could chime in here.

    Just a thought...we like multiples....how about doing the car without road numbers? I know there are several of us who have Alps Printers who could run off a small sheet of decals to include with the model so we can do more than one car? Might make it more appealing. I would probably buy 3 cars. I can also check with the powers that be here and see what it would cost to have us print the decals on the tampos... just a thought.

    That would be a very cool idea!

    I suppose I could go in for a car, too.

    I'd be interested in something roaming the rails during the 1970s, like a covered hopper.

    A couple of guys on the Frisco website turned me on to a new train of thought. We should keep track of how many sets of rail cars we would support. I'm trying to have a special run of rail cars that are in sets of three or more. One option in mind is new Frisco road numbers for the 5 pack NSC03-25 western railroad #4 or new road numbers for Frisco tank cars. All were manufactured by Micro-Trains. I would support two sets of each, one to run and one to leave wrapped. Our goal is for 100 sets to get it started.

    What are your thoughts and comments?
