The hoppers may stay about the same because I plan on adding the roof walks.

FYI, I decided against the above. Gold Coast makes very good detail parts so I'll leave it up to them.

Probably the best way to go. That leaves the builder free to use a plastic or metal molded roof walk or to use a see thru etched roofwalk if they want to get fancier. The old metal HP boxcar roofwalks seem to work fine on these hoppers when sawn to length....dave

The new gon and tank should have been here today but thanks to the weather they're stuck in Philly. The hoppers had some errors so I had to reorder.....

Shapeways is being a pain in the Haggis again and didn't want to print the gon and tank for someone who ordered them (even though they've already printed and sent them both to me). I've fixed the gon (3 cents added to price). The tank will take a bit longer to fix as it'a a pretty complex object. I'll post here when it's ready for purchase.

Did you try another 3D-printing provider?..

I've looked at many others but they're much more expensive. Not only that, they don't host a store so I would have to have inventory at home and also set up a way for payment. I would have to take care of all the shipping as well. Way too much time and effort.

It will have to be done with something like a locomotive but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.
