PRR X23 has been completed too. It was just impossible for me to get a good picture without a daylight.

2 more tankcars (almost) completed. Only couplers are missing.
I used my only set of suitable archbar trucks on the Eagle. One of the trucks is fully functional (incl. the springs), the other had a minor casting error and was not stable enough so I had to glue it together. I don't know who manufactured those trucks, but I would understand if it was not a big success. They are very nice but assembling them is a pain. My fingers are too big for those tiny springs!

1. Compañía Mexicana de Petróleo "El Aguila" S.A.

Hi JP,

Is I t still possible to get the FEC box car and Pennsylvania 50' gondola sets? Also, did you ever do a set for the Belcher tanks, or are you still working on that one?

All decal sets are possible. They can be on the next sheet.
If you find any error please let me know.
If you want different road numbers or different reweigh, all that is possible.

The Belcher car is not ready yet, I make UTLX now. Belcher is the next, then Pennsy SW1200 keystone and F3B.
I have tests for 2 more FEC boxcars printed out, but not tried on the cars yet: FEC 610 AAR express boxcar and FEC 20611 double sheathed boxcar. I have a problem with the trucks for the express boxcar, I am trying to get them from the manufacturer in Czech and he seems to have this as the lowest priority. He only keeps promissing. He has the trucks, but sending me a correct invoice seems to be a problem... oh well.
Pennsy H31 decals also need only test, 2 different schemes. I have 6 of the resin hoppers from Bill Dixon.

UTLX Joma tankcars are ready.

Road numbers:
17183, 17249, 17275, 17302, 17344, 17402, 17481, 17531, 17577, 17602
The built and test dates are adjusted accordingly. New repack too.
Later repack by UTC CO. in 1946 is the same for all. It can be changed up to your wish, but I cannot read it without magnifying glass.
Price 4 US$ per car. Each decal set is good for one car and will letter only one of the above mentioned road numbers.

If you find something wrong on it, please let me know, I can correct it on the next sheet.

Two AAR 1937 40' boxcars have been added to my collection.
The artwork is from TT-West.
More boxcars are in progress.

I am happy that you like it. But I cannot make those decals for you without a permission from Richard. The artwork belongs to TT-west.

as Orson Wells famously said: "We will sell no wine before its time."

That said...
I have been doing test runs of some decal sets, focusing on accurate lettering for cars that are (or were) offered commercially in TT-scale.

The plan of record is that these WILL be available from TTWEST.

"Its Time..." is coming
