    Hmmm, their new N Scale track cleaning boxcars are interesting too.

    The War Production Board didn't allow new, unproven designs to be produced. This is why the Frisco bought copies of the Burlington O-5, and the Pennsy bought copies of C&O Texas types.

    So, what happened with the EM-1? Are they copies of the SP AC-9, with their fireboxes slimmed down to burn better coal?

    The AC-9 locos were built by Lima in 1939, whereas the NP, DM&IR and B&O locos were all built by Baldwin.
    The NP locos date to 1928 or 1930.
    The DM&IR locos were built in 1941 and 1943.
    The B&O EM locos were built in 1944 and 1945.

    Living in the southeast and seeing the J so many times when it was running in the NS steam program, I may just have to start putting back some funds for one with sound to replace my way back first run Bachman J. I also agree with Hardcoaler that those track cleaning cars are interesting.
