And now, the newest variations: http://www.tt-board.de/forum/showthread.php?t=51764

It looks like there are more than a few images there but you have to be registered to see them.
Registration is easy except that it is a German site. Google will translate it for you but you have to answer the challenge question in German so no go.

Oh well if the pictures are interesting perhaps someone will post them here.

I believe the answer to the challenge question is "weiche" (switch) but it's been forever so it may have changed by now.

That are all photos from Cylindrical Hoppers out of the TT-Board.de Topic. The other photos I will post in other topics. Thanks to the photographer Dikusch, that I may post it here.

General questions for those in the know: What was the original colour of the CP pacman livery on these cars? Was it dark brown, dark grey or black?

I would really like to run a few of these.

They were black. See here. You can use for a search of a prototype the database from Canadian Freight Railcar Gallery. :thumbup:

Edit: A collage of models from 2014.

Stopped at the price. $ 142.31 Cnd$ for one car is not going to happen.

Hope they do an undecorated kit for a reasonable price.

The kit will come (probably in January), planned with half the price (incl. german VAT :wink: ).
