    I was just cruising the Des Plaines Hobbies site. And it dawned upon me that I couldn't think of who supplied the cars for their custom runs? I want guess maybe it's AM?

    Also, being somewhat [​IMG] of a Milw fan, I was admiring their 70 hopper. And was curious about prototype fidelity?

    :D

    Yes. They are nice looking cars. I wonder how close to anything the Milw ever had?

    What about the tank cars? By chance do you know the origin of those bodies?

    :D

    While this isn't Milwaukee, it does look like the hopper being sold by Des Plaines Hobbies. It maybe a longer car though, since it has 16 ribs and the model only has 13.

    Seems to me, I have a shot of a Milwaukee hopper that was sold and still had the original paint job. IIRC it was very similar to this one. If I find it, I'll post it.
