Yes Paul, a mathematics teacher at that. But, to many mathematics is just as incomprehensible as magic. :D

Anyway I think he has picked a great car for the Show.

Nothing Magic about Mathematics..... 2 + 2 always equaled 3 or 5.... depending upon what time of day it was.

:eek::eek::eek:

I am real excited about the show car..... Should be very colorful and it is something different!

You know what they say about math--Figures don't lie but liars figure.

It is a great looking car and something different than the usual boxcar.

Great looking car!!! I see these cars all the time as the WW is the shortline servicing the glass plant I work in as well as others in the area. Here are some pics of their local motive power and yard office. I have been wanting to paint a GP unit I have to match one of these. A string of yellow WW hopper cars will give me the motivation to do so.

RJ, Tom, Got you guys covered!

Ward,

I saw the WW engines the other day.... I forget where but I saw them. Saw a bunch of WW covered hoppers too. Most were the light grey with black lettering. I did see a couple of the Yellow and Blue lettering ones

Nice lookin cars for sure!

Marty,

No set figure yet. I dont want to say it will cost $XX.XX and then it costs $YY.YY dollars . I know that what ever it will be, it will be a GREAT price for what you will be getting. I dont think the cost per car at the show will be way off from what the selling price has been in the past.

BUT as soon as I hear how much they will be, I will surely post it on here.

I KNOW I will have at least ONE set of four for my railroad. I really like this car.

Here is a picture of a real one similar to what we are going to have for the Fall Show Car.

Very NICE CAR!

Winchester and Western has been mentioned to us at several of the shows, and we decided to look into it. As I said already, NICE CAR and we do listen and act on your suggestions, when we can.

Harry: By any chance will this car have the new design pad to accommodate the Kadee coupler or the new AC Kuppler? Later RJD

YA what RJ said. Look how that car sits above the trucks.

You know RJ, that paint looks rolled. I bet Harry and friends painted that car just for Lewis...
Of course Harry does have,,,,,eggy-liners,,,,,
so I would not put this past him.

I'd buy them just to cut them up into ballast cars.
